Mothercraft Touch-a-Truck event needs a few extra hands

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Ottawa for kids|Easy ways to make kids happy

Mothercraft’s 2nd annual Touch-a-Truck event gives kids young and old the opportunity to get up close and personal with vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Touch-a-Truck will take place on Father’s Day at Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There’ll be over 30 vehicles for kids to explore, arts and crafts, food (c/o Busters), a strongman demonstration and other activities. (Does this event sound awesome or what?)

Proceeds from the fundraiser go toward supporting Mothercraft programs such as pre-natal and parenting support, learning and child care. In other words you get to give your kid the thrill of a lifetime AND support a most-excellent organization.

Unfortunately they’re short a few volunteers to help in a variety of roles: set-up, clean-up, runners, security, truck assistance, staging, etc.  Shifts are flexible and range from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Volunteers will be fed and watered! High school students can earn volunteer hours by attending the info session as well as for their participation at the event.

For more information call 613-728-1839 or email lilianne@mothercraft.com

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). During the day I work as a writer at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
