Touch a Truck event at St. Francis Xavier School in Old Metairie a Kid’s Dream

November 4, 2013 – Metairie, LA — ( –

Monster trucks, a cement mixer, a SWAT unit truck, a fire truck and a bulldozer: These trucks and more were part of the St. Francis Xavier Catholic School Men’s Club “Touch A Truck” event held on Nov. 2 on the school grounds. Kids and grownups were able to climb on, in, over and through these big trucks and emergency vehicles.
Members of the Jefferson Parish Fire Department, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office SWAT team unit, the U.S. National Guard, emergency medical workers and members of the Sudden Impact Racing Team were on hand, showing attendees the inner workings of the vehicles.
Proceeds support St. Francis Xavier Catholic School.

Event organizer and St. Francis Xavier Men’s Club member Carlos Calix said the Men’s Club wanted to hold a fundraiser that was new and different from what is traditionally done by so many groups.

“Everyone has fish frys, gumbo cook-offs and crawfish boils as fundraisers,” Calix said. “We were looking to do something different that would not only raise money for St. Francis Xavier Catholic School, but also put kids in touch with those who serve the community.”

Calix talked with a friend who lives in Connecticut and asked about the types of fundraisers that were done in Connecticut in order to get some ideas for different types of fundraisers. Calix’s buddy told him about “Touch A Truck.” With the success of this year’s event, the St. Francis Xavier Men’s Club hopes to make the “Touch A Truck” event an annual fundraiser.
