Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event benefiting The Hope Center of Edmond, allowing kids of all ages to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firefighters, construction workers, and many more. Edmond’s own fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck, a solid waste truck, plus much more from the community like tow trucks and storm tracker vehicles will be available for hands-on exploration.

Admission for the Touch-A-Truck event is a suggested $2 donation with all proceeds going to The Hope Center of Edmond to benefit residents in need. 

The last event displayed over 30 different vehicles, a helicopter, kid-friendly characters, and face painting for kids to enjoy and raised $6,500 for The Hope Center of Edmond.

Continuing in 2023, we will have a quiet hour from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to accommodate those sensitive to loud noises. During this time, no horns or loud music will be allowed.
