What is Touch-a-Truck and who does it benefit?

The New River Valley Home Builders Association’s focus for Touch-A-Truck NRV is to allow children to become familiar with building industry careers by offering an educational opportunity to explore trucks, tractors, heavy machinery and to interact with the people who build, protect, and serve the NRV.


Proceeds from this event go towards the New River Valley Home Builders Association, as well as the following goals:

  • a donation to a local trades education program to help with supplies and material costs

  • the NRVHBA Builders Care Fund which helps fund scholarships to local students to pursue education in construction and the trades, provide charitable contributions to community partners, and fund future workforce development initiatives in the community.
