The event benefits Spectrum Charter School: a non-profit public charter school that educates students on the autism spectrum

Touch a Truck is an interactive event for families and the young at heart. Kids of all ages will be able to learn, discover and explore their favorite big trucks and vehicles. The BEE Well Family Expo will feature a marketplace of information, products and demonstrations focusing on health, safety, fitness, recycling and green living community information.
In addition to a great line-up of “cool” truck and vehicles and vendors to explore this year’s event will also feature an electronic recycling event. Spectrum Charter School is partnering with West Penn Metals Recycling LLC – a state certified recycler of metals and electronic deconstruction. The community is invited bring their out-of-date and unusable small electronics to be recycled at NO CHARGE. NO TELEVISIONS will be accepted.

Admission and parking to Touch- A-Truck is Free. The event will also feature crafts and face painting, a bake sale and special visits from Thera Paws therapy dogs and Spiny the Dinosaur from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

A large selection of Raffle Baskets plus a youth bike have been donated by local businesses and donors that will be part of the event-day fund raising efforts. Bruster’s Ice Cream, Leena’s and Speals on Wheels food trucks and Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza will also be on hand to add to the event day excitement.

Proceeds from event day fund-raising activities will help the school to continue providing a school-to-work education for students ages 13 -21. “Our goal for this year’s fund raising is to purchase mobile STEM carts for each of our classrooms”, said Jenni Shurr Spectrum Charter School principal.

“We are excited to partner with our sponsors to once again be hosting Spectrum Charter School’s Touch-a-Truck event in Monroeville,” said Michelle Johnson the school’s Chief Executive Officer. “The event is also a fun way to help educate our community about our school and the work we do with students on the autism spectrum.”
