(COLORADO SPRINGS) – Kids got a close up to some special trucks this weekend at the Norris-Penrose Event Center.

There were over 40 trucks ranging from construction vehicles to fire trucks and other emergency vehicles and were parked to allow kids the chance to explore them to the fullest. Touch-A-Truck is a fundraiser for the Junior League of Colorado Springs’ Fostering Change initiative.

On display was a vactor truck, sweeper, paint truck, grader with large plow and a plow truck with a special plow for kids to paint.

This is the eighth year the event has been held, and is completely volunteer based.

The group uses the funds to help foster youth focused on the risk factors associated with aging out of foster care, including homeless, human trafficking and domestic violence.
