TA Petro raising money for St. Christopher Fund

TravelCenters of America (TA) launched a campaign Monday, Aug. 1 to support the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF), a non-profit organization helping truckers overcome financial struggles caused by medical expenses.

Visitors at TA and Petro Stopping Centers are invited to make donations during the event, which runs Aug. 1-31. Individuals who donate $1 receive a commemorative wristband. Individuals donating $5 receive a SCF keychain. One hundred percent of all donations go to benefit SCF, according to a TA statement.

“It’s always a great feeling helping SCF raise money for truck drivers in need,” said Tom O’Brien, president and chief executive officer of TA. “We look forward to this campaign each year. Seeing how our customers come together to help their fellow drivers in need is an amazing example of why we’ve all come to love and respect the truck driving community. Our team is proud to play a role in making that happen and telling others about it.”
