Touch-A-Truck is a unique and interactive fundraiser that allows children to see, touch, and safely explore their favorite big trucks and heavy machinery, as well as to meet the personnel who protect, serve, and build Johnston County communities. Trucks on display will include emergency vehicles, tractors, machinery, construction equipment, farm equipment, service and delivery trucks, and more.
This event will also include food trucks, inflatables, special guests, face painting, and so much more! There is fun for children and adults alike! Admission is FREE!
$5 wristbands will be available to purchase for inflatables, face painting, etc.
Proceeds from Touch-A-Truck will directly benefit Johnston County through the Junior Women’s League of Smithfield’s initiatives like the Johnston County Blessing Boxes and scholarships for women. Funds also support grants for other Johnston County non-profits to assist with the development of programs benefiting women and children. JWL has awarded over $155,000 in Community Impact Grants since its inception in January 2016.
JWL’s members will collect non-perishable food and personal care items to be placed in JWL’s Blessing Boxes throughout Johnston County. Look for the collection site under the Touch-A-Truck flag! Attendees can drop off items or monetary donations at the black 1934 rat rod featuring the JWL logo, sponsored by Teddy Bland, realtor with HomeTowne Realty Clayton East.
