PEP Anounces Fifth Annual Touch-A-Truck Event

Postpartum Education for Parents's Fifth Annual Touch-A-Truck event will be held on Sunday, Sep. 20, 2015, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the West Campus parking lots of Santa Barbara City College (SBCC).

Touch-A-Truck is an affordable and unique family community event where kids of all ages have the opportunity to see, touch, get behind the wheel, honk horns, learn about and safely explore trucks, construction equipment and public safety vehicles.  

Meet the men and women who protect, serve, work and build in our community. 

Refreshments and food will be available for purchase. The event also includes community vendors and exhibitors on "Truck Alley" and a "Fun Zone" with bounce houses, face painters and activities for toddlers. 

Touch-A-Truck offers an excellent opportunity for sponsors to showcase their brand and interact with parents, children and the Santa Barbara community at large. 

There are many sponsorship opportunities available, including custom packages. Those interested in becoming a sponsor of the event or making a donation to PEP can contact the event sponsorship coordinator at [email protected]. Sponsorship information is also available at: www.peptouchatruck.org/sponsorship.

Tickets for the event are available for purchase at the Touch-A-Truck website beginning Sep. 1, 2015. Admission is $20 per family and $5 per individual.  

Touch-A-Truck is PEP's annual fundraiser. All proceeds from the event go to support PEP's services to the community.

Touch-A-Truck is a success because of the continued support of our community sponsors and truck providers. So many make this event and its impact possible.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
