October 11, 2013- Seaford, DE - The Trinity Foundation, in collaboration with Trinity Logistics, hosted its fourth annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, October 5th, from 10am – 2pm at Trinity Logistics in Seaford. The mission of this year’s event was to raise money and awareness for Rachel’s Challenge. This challenge was created to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion. Rachel Scott, the first victim of the Columbine school shooting in 1999, said, “A single act of kindness and compassion can start a chain reaction.”
The main focus of Touch-A-Truck is to put big rigs, construction equipment, emergency vehicles, and other cool trucks on display for kids to see and play around on up close, as well as brush elbows with the hometown heroes who operate these vehicles, but there were many other fun activities for adults and kids alike on-site. Trinity team members worked hard as volunteers to provide the attendees with a great experience and the weather was great as well. Trinity team member Gina Banning recapped, “We had record breaking temperatures which provided us with a beautiful day. As I walked around the parking lot and saw our team members painting faces, making children laugh and playing games with the members of our community I realized that is what it is all about.”
The event was a great success, with several hundred attendees who helped raise over $6,500 for Rachel’s Challenge. Those funds will be put into a CAF (Community Activation Fund). This fund will be used to help local schools that want to bring the Rachel’s Challenge program to their schools.
