TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of the TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands, launched its annual campaign in support of the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund, a non-profit organization that helps truck drivers suffering from financial hardship due to medical problems.
The campaign will run at all TA and Petro locations from Aug. 22 – Sept. 30.
During the event, guests and employees at TA and Petro Stopping Centers will be invited to make donations of $1 or more. Commemorative 2013 wristbands will be given to everyone choosing to donate. Donations may be made at all company restaurants, travel stores, fuel buildings and truck service facilities. One hundred percent of all donations will go to the SCF.
TravelCenters has been supporting drivers through the SCF since 2010. The TA and Petro annual campaign contributions mark the largest single donations the Fund receives each year. As of July 31, 2013, SCF has helped 806 truck drivers and their families with monthly bills, including utilities and mortgages.
Professional drivers who are suffering from financial hardship due to medical problems can apply to the SCF for assistance at www.truckersfund.org.
