The Monmouth Day Care Center (MDCC) will host its fourth annual Touch-a-Truck "fun-raiser" September 21, from 10AM – 2PM at the Red Bank Middle School, 101 Harding Road, Red Bank. Police cars, fire engines, dump trucks and other construction equipment will be displayed in the Middle School parking lot, where kids will get a closer look at the vehicles they love to see in their neighborhoods every day. Children are encouraged to explore the vehicles in a safe environment while the owners and operators are on hand to describe how the vehicles work and what kind of jobs they do. In addition to the vehicles on display, the entrance fee includes crafts, games and music. Food vendors will be on site, and a 50-50 raffle will be held. Visitors are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean counties; all participants will be immediately entered into a drawing to win a prize. Tickets are $12 for a family of four if purchased in advance--$15 at the door--plus $1 for each additional family member. Advance tickets are available from MDCC by phone (732-741-4313) or through Monmouth Day Care Center's Facebook Event Page. The event is sponsored by Ron's Five Star Cleaning, The Pressler Group, Karson Food Service, DeFazio's Lawn Service, The Gannon Holsey Group, Shrewsbury Gymnastics, Calendar For Kids and, Firestone Complete Auto Care, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, and The Shore Scoop. Special thanks go to Fins & Feathers and Schwartz' Mazda, Hino and Suzuki. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Monmouth Day Care Center, a non-profit serving families seeking quality childcare without regard to race, religion, ethnicity or economic status. The Monmouth Day Care Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and provides a safe, stimulating environment in which children are nurtured and challenged intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
