Touch-A-Truck 2015

Touch-A-Truck was a huge success! More than 4,000 community members brought their kids to touch, climb on, and explore over 50 big and loud motor vehicles. 

Each year, Austin Children's Services must raise more than 65% of its operating budget from the community. With your support of Touch-A-Truck, you helped raise over $90,000 for the children of Austin Children's Services. 

Touch-A-Truck represents what Austin Children's Services is all about - promoting happy, healthy families in our community. Thank you for everyone who shared in this fun-filled family day with us and for helping us provide the nurture and care the kids of Austin Children's Services need to grow into successful, happy, independent adults.

About Touch-A-Truck

ACS Touch-A-TruckTouch-A-Truck is a family friendly event that 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. Returning from a one-year hiatus, the event will be held this year at Camp Mabry, the perfect location for a family event that draws thousands. This year's Touch-A-Truck will feature -- in addition to the vehicles -- live music, plenty of food trucks, and a Kid Zone complete with a petting zoo, face painting, barrel-train rides and much more.

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, the event raises funds for essential programs within Austin Children's Services.
