The upcoming Touch a Truck event will be a little different than in previous years.
 
Little Minions Events, a non-profit group in Fort Saskatchewan, has big plans for their fourth annual event.
 
For the first time ever, people can sponsor a family.
 
“This year we were looking at just more of a community connection to Fort Saskatchewan. The past three years we had been looking at where our donations from the community were going,” said Little Minions Events committee vice chair Meghan Pollard. “We thought, how about we ask our community to start sponsoring and find out if there’s some of our families that could use our support."
 
Those wishing to sponsor a family can do so by sending an email to [email protected].
 
The first year, all proceeds went to the Fort Saskatchewan Families First Society. The second year they donated to the Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club and last year they gave everything to the food bank.
 
The event raises roughly $5,000 or so each year.
 
This year’s Touch a Truck takes place Jun.3 in Legacy Park.
