Touch-a-Truck

Virtual Touch A Truck Facebook Live Event!

July 1, 2020

This year, because of COVID-19 safety precautions, we are providing virtual videos of all your favorite vehicles. We know it’s not the same, but we hope you still find some joy in seeing our community businesses and service personnel on screen, honking those horns. Our virtual Touch-A-Truck will be a composed sequence of videos featuring trucks/vehicles, sponsors and vendors within our community. 

Join us this July 1 on Facebook to check out some awesome work vehicles like dump trucks, garbage trucks, and etc. See what they can do during this virtual Touch-A-Truck Facebook Live event. 

All videos were filmed using all the health and safety precautions during this pandemic. 

A HUGE THANK YOU to the organizations for their commitment and participation in this year’s event! They took the time out of their important duties to help create these videos just for YOU!

Please consider giving a gift of $15, because it supports the funding in literacy, food security and homelessness. You can make your tax deductible donation to help us here.

2020 Touch a Truck FAQs

 Q: Why was the event moved to 2021?  

A: In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19 and the fact that the WHO has now declared it a global pandemic, we are taking all reasonable precautions to keep our community safe and informed. The health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, partners, and sponsors is our top priority. The decision to move the TaT event to year 2021, was made after careful consideration of the potential impact that a hands-on event could have on the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus in our community.
