Touch a Truck

The Junior League of New Orleans (JLNO) is thrilled to present the area’s most unique family experience on November 17, 2018 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Pontchartrain Center. The 7th annual Touch a Truck will provide families the opportunity to interact with the wide variety of businesses and vehicles that protect, serve, and build South Louisiana. Touch a Truck helps children connect these vehicles to possible careers in construction, manufacturing, emergency response, and many others.

Not only will families have fun at this event, but 100% of the proceeds will help women and families in Greater New Orleans through JLNO’s mission, community projects, and volunteer efforts.


Sponsorship Opportunities

JLNO maximizes all it receives by being one of the area’s most steadfast volunteer organizations. As we head into our 95th year, our 2,100 members remain dedicated to understanding the community’s needs, envisioning ways to better lives, and bringing forth lasting change. Our experiential training creates effective volunteers and leaders. Because of JLNO, New Orleans has more women founding organizations and starting businesses, more trained leaders serving on boards, more volunteers giving their time and effort, and more donors valuing these causes through their financial support.

Touch a Truck 2017

The Junior League of New Orleans sincerely appreciates everyone’s generous support of the 6th Annual Touch a Truck from 10 am to 2 pm on November 4, 2017 inside the Pontchartrain Center. Nearly 3000 attendees of all ages thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of vehicles and activities, and  participation helped continue our efforts to make this a marquee event for years to come. JLNO also held its first Field Trip Friday that enabled 500 students from our partner schools to enjoy the event for free.

Through ticket sales, business sponsorships, and donations, the event raised over $45,000 for JLNO’s community projects that advance the wellbeing of women in Metropolitan New Orleans.
