About the Event
Touch-A-Truck is an annual charity event sponsored by Skips Wastewater Services to benefit a local charity. Recently, all event proceeds are donated to Hockanum Valley Community Council (HVCC) located in Vernon, CT.
Touch a truck is a free event to attend, but any donation is greatly appreciated. Your money will go towards missions to make our community a better place for all!
- Assess on a continuing basis the human service needs of the community
- Assist and support the development, implementation, coordination and operation of necessary new human service programs
- Coordinate and improve services with other agencies in the area

Our next event will be held on October 1st, 2022. If you are a business and would like to participate or donate, please contact email@example.com.
Our 2021 event was the biggest and most successful to date. Local businesses gathered over 40 pieces of equipment to display for an estimated 800 attendees.
With the help of local businesses and those who attended the event, Skips was able to donate $8,193 to HVCC.
At touch-a-truck, local businesses bring equipment from tractors to construction machinery to dump trucks to Skips Wastewater Services at 21 Courtney Dr, Ellington, CT. Families and children are invited to come see this equipment up close, and even sit in the drivers seat. In addition to seeing countless times of vehicles, Skips has other activities to enjoy as well.
Some of the activities you can expect at Touch a Truck:
- Face painting
- Large sand box with toy trucks
- Arts & crafts
- Basketball court
