Donations for the campaign came from customers and employees of TA during a six-week period.
"With the very generous help of TA and Petro customers and employees, the SCF has helped more than 470 drivers and their families," says Dr. Donna Kennedy, executive director of SCF. "This donation will allow us to help many more with utility bills, mortgage payments and other monthly bills."
TravelCenters began its annual SCF fundraiser in 2010 and generated $211,115 in donations, the largest single donation the SCF had received to date. The 2011 campaign donation has topped that.
