Event Info:

The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) is again presenting the 3rd Annual Touch a Truck, a unique, one-day experience that gives families an up-close look at their favorite “big trucks” and the opportunity to meet the people that protect, serve, and build Metropolitan New Orleans. Join us on Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm at Children's Hospital State Campus.

Touch a Truck displays may include construction trucks, emergency responder vehicles, tractors, and utility trucks. The special chance to touch a variety of vehicles, sit in the driver’s seat of a bulldozer, or climb aboard a fire engine creates lasting memories for children and their families.

Last year’s event raised over $27,000, included 55 sponsors, trucks, and vendors, and allowed 1600 children and adults to enjoy an afternoon of learning and exploring.

Proceeds from Touch a Truck directly benefit JLNO’s ten community projects that serve the at-risk population of Metropolitan New Orleans through charter school support, nutritional programming, youth development, and activities for the elderly.
