The Rotary Club of Redlands has decided to turn its sixth annual Touch-a-Truck into a virtual event, to be held Saturday, June 27.
The club had originally scheduled the event for June 13 on the University of Redlands campus, then decided to postpone it because of the coronavirus pandemic.
In previous years, the in-person event has featured a variety of trucks and other vehicles on display where children can touch and explore them.
For this year’s virtual Touch-a-Truck, vehicle operators, exhibitors and sponsors will submit short videos to the organizers who will then post the collection at redlandstouchatruck.com for children and families to view at their leisure, according to a news release.
The presentations will be available to the public at no charge.
There will also be videos from nonprofit groups and sponsors, telling viewers who they are and what they do, and there will be opportunity drawings for prizes provided by the sponsors.
Proceeds will be used to fund the local and international charitable projects of the Redlands Rotary Club Foundation and its other nonprofit partners, including the annual Safety Around Water program offered by the YMCA of the East Valley.
Those with interesting, specialized vehicles and nonprofit and for-profit organizations who have an interesting story to tell, with or without vehicles, are invited to submit video clips for consideration for the virtual Touch-a-Truck event. Nonprofit organizations and those who display vehicles may participate at no charge. Others may submit videos in exchange for a tax-deductible donation.
Instructions and information will be available soon at redlandstouchatruck.com.
Information is also available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling or texting 951-237-3453 during regular business hours.
