For the past six years, Coastal Kids Home Care has brought Touch-A-Truck into the community. The event has included more than 50 vehicles, food trucks, raffles, music, and has grown from a grassroots effort to an eagerly anticipated community event. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be able to hold our event the way we envisioned.  BUT... in some ways, we believe this year's event is the most important one of all. 

Join us for "CRUISIN' FOR COASTAL KIDS" -- the 2020 "NO" Touch-A-Truck that our kiddos deserve!

WHO: Children of Coastal Kids Home Care 

WHAT: Cruisin' for Coastal Kids Home Care

Join us in bringing some fun to our pediatric patients through a Cruisin’ for Coastal Kids parade! We will be parading by their houses, waving and honking, and dropping off much needed supplies (masks, wipes, etc.) to these families. We may be coming through your neighborhood! If so, have the kids wave from the window or front yard if they see us!

WHEN: August, 22 2020 | 9 AM

WHERE: Two separate events in South Salinas (Monterey County) and San Jose (Santa Clara County)

We will meet in South Salinas and San Jose and drive a fixed route to the homes of 10-15 kids living with serious-illness or disability. These kids have been home-bound since March and most of them are always home-bound.

**Actual parade route is TBD

WHY: Each year, it is difficult for our sickest children to attend our events because of their health conditions. This year, we are bringing the event TO THEM. This event will bring awareness to the importance of taking precautions to protect kiddos like ours during these unprecedented times.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: See below!


We hope you will join us in "Cruisin' for Coastal Kids Home Care"!


Provide a Vehicle/Become a Sponsor!

ANY donation will secure your spot in our parade.

We know this has been a difficult year for everyone financially, therefore we are not requiring our sponsors to meet a designated amount to participate. However, please check out some of the fun perks we have included!

  • $100 Donation: Will include a vehicle mask (pictured above)!
  • $5,000 Donation: Your company logo will be featured on vehicles masks! **Up to 6 sponsors**

Grab your vehicle, decorate it, and get ready to make some sick kiddos really happy! This event will provide you with the unique opportunity to connect with the community and show your company's and/or personal support of an important cause: in-home and end-of-life care for sick children. This year, more than ever, we hope to highlight essential workers (Police Officers, Firefighters, Sanitation Workers, etc.) who have worked hard to keep this community thriving during these hard times.
