DESCRIPTION OF TOUCH A TRUCK® JACKSON

Put kids in the driver’s seat! Touch A Truck® Jackson is a family-friendly, hands-on event that offers opportunities for children to EXPLORE, CLIMB and TOUCH trucks, emergency response vehicles, heavy machinery and other equipment, as well as meet the personnel who protect, serve and build our community. Learning will come alive when children connect these gigantic vehicles to our Mississippi economy and possible careers like farming, manufacturing and construction. It is also a great place to host a party for your team, school group or birthday.  Touch A Truck® Jackson will again offer Field Trip Friday, an opportunity for school groups to attend a pre-event with a learning resource guide provided.

TARGET DEMOGRAPHIC

Touch A Truck® Jackson provides an excellent opportunity for sponsors to showcase their brand and interact with children, parents, educators, and civic and community leaders while reaching a key demographic:  FAMILIES.

•    Children of all ages
•    Families
•    Educators Pre-K to 4th Grade
•    Community organizations
•    Government officials including elected officials, emergency responders, and military personnel
•    Local business owners and community leaders

COMMUNITY IMPACT

The 2016 event raised over $70,000 to support the Junior League of Jackson’s mission to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women and improve communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Touch A Truck® Jackson is both a fund development event and community project of the Junior League of Jackson, whose members provide more than 4,000 volunteer hours to this event.  The 2016 event drew a crowd of almost 8,000 people.  We had 23 schools participate with over 2,000 students, teachers and chaperones.  This year we hope to reach even more students, community groups and individuals.
