Touch a Truck, Feed a Child

Proceeds from Touch-A-Truck ® will benefit the Junior League of Raleigh’s BackPack Buddies program, which feeds children from food-insecure families in Wake County.

In partnership with area schools, JLR’s BackPack Buddies feeds more than 150 students in need. Children receive a package containing six balanced meals and two healthy snacks, including fresh fruits, to take home at the end of every week during the traditional school year.
