Now through April 3, Pilot travel centers are raising funds through an in-store round-up campaign for Save the Children US, a global humanitarian organization working to meet the needs of children and their families in Ukraine.

Save the Children is distributing emergency supplies in Ukraine and the region and establishing safe spaces for children where possible.

Pilot is also be matching up to $100,000 of donations raised as part of our commitment to giving back to our communities on a local and global scale.

Pilot is asking customers to consider joining it in providing aid to Save the Children by rounding up your purchase to the nearest dollar when you make purchases at any of their travel centers.

Save the Children estimates more than 2.8 Ukrainians have fled their country since Russia began its attack in late February.

Trucking companies have stepped up to raise funds for Ukraine and its people.
