The Auburn Mall recently hosted a Touch-a-Truckk event to benefit the Simon Youth Foundation.

On Saturday, Sept. 26, a variety of trucks and construction equipment was on display at the mall.  Kids – both big and small – had the opportunity to climb on, sit in, and beep the horn of about a dozen different vehicles.  The APD Police car was very popular, as expected, with the flashing lights and extra loud horn.  Also, Auburn Fire Rescue’s new Tower 1 was on display in all it’s brand new shiny red glory.

Simon Youth Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, exists to help at-risk students who are on the verge of dropping out of high school stay in school.

Here are some images from the event.
