WHAT IS IT?


Name a child who wouldn’t love to climb aboard a fire truck, big rig or bulldozer! Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types – public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery and just plain cool – all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch, climb on and ask questions about their favorite trucks in a safe, supervised environment. Accompanying personnel will teach the children about the equipment displayed and how these machines help us and our community. Crafts, activities and kid-friendly food will be available to make this a perfectly entertaining day for the entire family!

WHEN IS IT?


Sunday, April 12, 2015 – Noon to 4 p.m.

“Be Prepared” is the Scout’s motto:  Rain date: April 19, 2015 – Noon to 4 p.m.

 

WHERE IS IT?


University Mall parking lot, Chapel Hill, NC

WHO IS ORGANIZING IT?


Boy Scout Troop 39, chartered by University United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill, is sponsoring the event.  Troop 39’s mission is to assist young men as they become knowledgeable, thinking, and responsible citizens of their community, nation, and world. The Boy Scouts of America teaches basic skills and knowledge needed to prepare young men to be well rounded individuals with an awareness of leadership, discipline, service, and study.

WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THE MONEY RAISED?


All money raised will support children and the community through UNC Children’s and Troop 39’s programs, service projects and activities.  UNC Children’s provides world-class medical care for patients, regardless of their ability to pay at North Carolina Children’s Hospital.

WHO CAN ATTEND?


The event, the Troop’s seventh annual Touch A Truck, is expected to draw over 3,000 individuals and families from throughout the Triangle.  Over 2,500 attended last year. Backpack fliers will be sent home with preschool and elementary school students again this year.  In addition, road signs, radio interviews, press releases and news coverage will be used to promote the event.

 

HOW MUCH IS ADMISSION?


$6 per person, with a maximum of $25 per family. Children Under 2 are free.
