      Dial Help to hold Big Truck Day Saturday

      Dial Help in Houghton is parking some big trucks at the Copper Country Mall this weekend for the kids to check out.

      It's their 6th Annual Big Truck Day, and they're planning to have it all from fire trucks to dump trucks.

      Big truck day takes place this Saturday at the mall parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be kids games, a bake sale, a coloring contest, and of course, big trucks.

      They also plan to have ambulances, police cars, and construction trucks at the mall for kids to play on.

      â??We are a crisis center. We're a sexual assault response center as well,â?? said Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator at Dial Help, Kevin Weir. â??We deal with a lot of topics that people don't want to talk about, so once a year, we like to engage in a fundraiser where we can just kind of put some of that aside, not forgetting about it, but just have some fun.â??

      A suggested donation of $5 for children will be accepted, and parents are free.
