Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event that provides kids of all ages with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firemen, construction workers and many more. Families will have the opportunity for a hands-on exploration of many vehicles such as Edmond’s own fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck and even a solid waste truck. Last year, the event displayed over 50 different vehicles for kids to enjoy.
Admission for the Touch-A-Truck event is a suggested $2 donation with the proceeds going to the HOPE Center of Edmond to benefit local residents in need.
We were able to raise $5,200 in 2019 for the Hope Center of Edmond, with approximately 2,000 in attendance.
Continuing in 2020, there will be a quiet hour from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to accommodate those sensitive to loud noises. During this time, no horns or loud music will be allowed.
For those that are sensitive to loud noises, for example horns honking, it is recommended that you bring proper protection for your ears for the remainder of the event.
