EDMOND — Edmond Electric is accepting entries through June 1 for its annual Touch-a-Truck event set for June 3.

Touch-a-Truck is a fundraiser that provides kids of all ages with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders such as police officers, firefighters and construction workers.

Families will have the opportunity for a hands-on exploration of vehicles such as Edmond's fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck and a solid waste truck.

Last year, the event featured more than 50 vehicles for kids to enjoy.

Admission is a suggested $2 donation with all proceeds going to the Edmond Hope Center to benefit local residents in need.

Interested groups or organizations should go to www.edmondelectric.com/touchatruck or call 216-7729.
