Kids got in the driver seat, honked horns, saw a robot and so much more at the Junior League of Pittsburgh’s 2018 Touch-a-Truck held Sept. 8 in the Strip District. Stay tuned for information about the next TAT event!

At the Junior League of Pittsburgh’s annual Touch-a-Truck event, children of all ages have the chance to explore many exciting vehicles. This is a unique opportunity for kids to get behind the wheel, honk horns and meet the men and women who drive each truck.

In past years, vehicles included fire trucks, ambulances, police cars, backhoe loaders, excavators and many more.

In addition to a variety of vehicles, the event features other fun activities and crafts for the entire family. Food and beverages are available for purchase at a variety of food trucks.

All proceeds from Touch-a-Truck benefit the Junior League of Pittsburgh, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Through volunteerism and its fundraising efforts, the League is working toward securing food access for households living below the poverty line in the East End of Pittsburgh.
