Springfield, MA – August 26, 2016

Touch-a-Truck presented by Columbia Gas is pulling into the MassMutual Center to help benefit The Gray House. This FREE community event will take place on September 10th from 10am – 2pm. This event is geared toward providing children with a fun filled, and educational hands on experience.  The wide variety of vehicles will create an opportunity for children to learn and interact with their favorite “trucks”.  

At each area a vehicle is stationed, an interactive activity will be held, as well as other activities throughout the event such as local cheer & dance demonstrations. Not only is this event a day to bring families within the Greater Springfield Area together for a chance to beat the heat and have an enjoyable family day but also to raise funds for The Gray House.

The Gray House is a 30+ year old North End intuition whose commitment is to help Springfield’s children and families. The mission of The Gray House is “To help its neighbors facing hardships to meet their immediate and transitional needs by providing food, clothing and educational services in a safe, positive environment in the North End of Springfield.” The Gray House fulfills our mission through the Food Pantry, Thrift Shop, Adult Education Program and Kids’ Club.
