Transportation and Public Works employees from Lake County, and many of the surrounding communities are collecting food to feed our hungry neighbors and participating in a Touch A Truck event!
We are partnering with the American Public Works Association Lake Branch, the Northern Illinois Food Bank, and the Lake County Sheriff's Office for a county-wide food drive. This food drive will bring to light the vital role Public Works/Transportation employees play as first responders in emergency management. All food donations will be delivered to the Lake County Fairgrounds for a huge Touch A Truck event with all the participating agencies. Admission to the event is free, but we encourage you to bring non-perishable food items to participate in the food drive. Bring the kids to see all their favorite big trucks up close and personal!
Touch A Truck Event: Tuesday, July 24, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., Lake County Fairgrounds
