Touch-A-Truck is a family-friendly event that benefits SAFE programs on the Austin Children’s Shelter campus. This event hosts a wide variety of vehicles for kids of all ages to play on while learning about the automobiles and how they help serve their communities. This year’s Touch-A-Truck will also feature live music, plenty of food trucks, and a Kid Zone complete with a petting zoo, face painting, barrel-train rides and much more.
Last year, Touch-A-Truck raised over $115,000 for the children of ACS and they are excited about hosting an even bigger and better event this year.
Touch-A-Truck is a fun way for families to bond as their children explore vehicles they have seen in movies, books, or just driving down the street. But more than that, Touch-A-Truck represents what ACS is all about – helping to promote happy, healthy families in our community.
