TravelCenters of America Inc., which operates TA, Petro Stopping Centers and TA Express travel center network, has launched a fundraising campaign at its locations nationwide to help professional drivers in need.

Starting today through Labor Day, Sept. 6, customers will have the option to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar in the travel stores and at the fuel islands. All proceeds of the round-up amount will benefit the St. Christopher’s Trucker Relief Fund, which helps professional drivers who may be out of work due to an illness or injury.

"TA began its support of SCF in 2010 and has since raised nearly $3 million for the organization,"  said Donna Kennedy, director of SCF. "We are honored and humbled by the support we receive from TravelCenters of America and its generous customers. Professional drivers always support each other and we are confident when they see the point-of-sale fundraiser at TA registers across the country, they will be proud to help. This campaign will have an immense impact for those in need."
