Thank you for helping make this year’s Touch-A-Truck a loud and proud success!

Because of your support, we raised over $135,000 – that’s $20,000 more than last year’s Touch-A-Truck!

Check out this year’s photos:

SAFE events like Touch-A-Truck make it possible for the children in our care to receive the housing, healing, and support they need.  Touch-A-Truck is a family friendly event and provides a fun way for families to bond as their children explore vehicles they have seen in movies, books, or just driving down the street.  What child doesn’t dream about getting behind the wheel of a fire truck, an ambulance, a bulldozer, or a tow truck?

But more than that, Touch-A-Truck represents what SAFE is all about – helping to promote happy, healthy families in our community. It is wonderful to be a part of a community that comes together to help build a just and safe future for all. Thank you for touching the lives of the children we serve.

This year at Camp Mabry, we saw more than 6,000 people and over 70 trucks.

One child described Touch-A-Truck as the best day of his life! Another thought he was at the “Disney World of Trucks.”

Touch-A-Truck wouldn’t be possible without all the amazing sponsors, partners, vehicles, participants, volunteers, and attendees!

We would like to thank everyone who came out to Touch-A-Truck to make it a fun-filled day of sirens, horns, and a field full of every child’s life-size toys. Even Batman and the Ghostbusters made an appearance!
