Comments: Touch-A-Truck is a family friendly, hands-on event that offers opportunities for children to EXPLORE, CLIMB, and TOUCH trucks of all kinds, including emergency response vehicles, heavy machinery, and other equipment. Kids will also have the opportunity to meet the personnel who protect, serve, and build our community.
More than 20 trucks will be on hand for the event, as well as food trucks, face painting, and more!
Funds raised from Touch-A-Truck will support the Junior League’s A League of Learners initiative, which is focused on fostering lifelong learners in the Chattanooga community. This includes the League’s Kids in the Kitchen event, as well as their Adopt-A-Teacher program, through which League members partner with new teachers in HCDE Opportunity Zone elementary schools to provide them with support through their first year of teaching.
Last year was out first year and we had 1300 people attend. We are hoping to increase the number of attendees this year.
