Touch-A-Truck Gives Literacy Bus a Lift

Dancing in a bulldozer – this could start a trend

For the seventh year a fleet of big trucks that inspire kids big wheeled dreams parked on Manhattan Avenue between Bayard and Leonard Streets for the annual BK Story Voyager Touch-A-Truck.

Waste Management’s Peter DeLuca (2nd from right) brought his team and one of the most popular trucks (the bulldozer) in every BK Story Voyager Touch-A-Truck!

Thanks to UPS, Waste Management, Knights Collision Auto Care Center, National Grid, Calexico, D’Arienzo Funeral Home for bringing their trucks for the kids to touch. Also on hand were a bouncy houses, one in the shape of a fire truck, art projects, face painting, and regular family Yoga classes via Hosh Yoga.  The event was sponsored by CTA Architects, Bank of America, UPS, Waste Management, McDonalds, and Panera Bread. All the proceeds from ticket sales go to help fund the BK Story Voyager’s operating costs so it can continue its journey to inspire North Brooklyn’s children love of books and to improve literacy.

Trucks can inspire girl power!
