Each fall, the Junior Women's League of Smithfield's Touch-A-Truck brings emergency vehicles, tractors, construction equipment, and more cool trucks to Downtown Smithfield as they raise funds to meet community needs.  

JWL's 2023 Touch-A-Truck is being planned for Saturday, November 4!  Touch-A-Truck allows children (of all ages) an opportunity to see, touch, and safely explore their favorite big trucks and heavy machinery, as well as to meet the personnel that build, protect, and serve Johnston County communities.  

For more information about Touch-A-Truck, visit the Junior Women's League of Smithfield's website.
