Touch a Truck logo rev2015-01What child doesn’t dream about getting behind the wheel of a fire truck, an ambulance, a bulldozer, or a tow truck? Touch a Truck makes this a reality! This unique, interactive event allows families to touch and learn about how a wide variety of businesses and vehicles protect, serve, invest in, and build our community.

The 5th Annual Touch a Truck will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 10 am to 2 pm at Lakefront Airport (6001 Stars and Stripes Blvd.).

As of Wednesday, March 22, JLNO’s Touch a Truck event is proceeding as planned this Saturday, March 25. Our leadership is in contact with local meteorologists, airport authorities, and the Orleans Levee District about potential weather conditions that might affect the event. Keep an eye on our website, along with Facebook and Twitter accounts for information on any changes to the event.

Want to make a greater positive impact in Metro New Orleans? Bring diapers to Touch a Truck and help us “stuff a truck!” JLNO’s Diaper Bank helps the one in three mothers struggling to provide clean, dry diapers for her child. You can help these families from the bottom up by bringing disposable diapers to Touch a Truck. Diapers can be of any type, size, and brand, and opened packages of diapers are acceptable.
