Falls Township’s sixth annual Touch a Truck fundraiser, which was held recently, was bigger and better than years past, featuring even more large trucks, excavators, towing vehicles, utility trucks, mowers, emergency response vehicles, fire trucks, construction vehicles, and heavy machinery.
Hand in hand with more vehicles is the addition of several new sponsors, who, with returning sponsors, helped the 2023 Touch a Truck event raise a record-breaking $26,850 for The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides financial aid to families throughout the Delaware Valley who are in need due to recent tragedy or adversity.
In all, Falls Township’s Touch a Truck, through its generous sponsors, has contributed more than $85,000 to the Foundation over the last several years.
Last year’s Touch a Truck fundraiser generated $20,200 in charitable donations to The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation, which is headed by NBC Sports host, Michael Barkann. Barkann attended the event, taking photos with fans and sponsors alike.
Spearheaded by Falls Township Supervisor Vice Chairman Jeff Boraski and the township’s Parks and Recreation Department, Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children to learn more about how the various vehicles on display serve as first response, construction, farming, manufacturing, and more.
