Putting a Dent in Mental Health drew a crowd of hundreds throughout the day for its first ever Touch-a-Truck Car Show at the Franklin County High School in Rocky Mount.

The Aug. 3 event offered families a chance to see emergency vehicles, classic cars and local race car driver Brad Foy’s car was also on display.

Putting a Dent in Mental Health is a nonprofit organization that strives to create educational opportunties for first responders and their families about mental health. The event also served as a fundraiser to further the organization’s mission.

The event brought in approximately $200 from donations, 50/50 raffle and raffle sales for a chainsaw. Putting a Dent in Mental Health Founder Jonathan Smith said there are still raffle tickets available for purchase as the drawing will be done via Facebook Live on Sept. 7.
