TravelCenters of America raised nearly $153,000 for professional drivers in need through its annual round-up campaign for the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day, guests at participating TA, Petro and TA Express locations had the opportunity to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar. The funds raised will be donated directly to SCF to support professional drivers who have experienced an injury or illness that has recently caused them to take a break from the road.
SCF provides assistance to these drivers and their families in the form of monetary aid for basic needs and information on how to navigate the medical system.
“The work of St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund aligns with our mission to return every traveler to the road better than they came and we are committed to helping ensure professional drivers have access to critical resources during times of need,” said Debi Boffa, Chief Executive Officer of TA. “We thank our guests for their incredible generosity and supporting the heroic men and women who sacrifice so much to keep our economy moving.”
TA and SCF have been in close partnership since 2010, with TA raising over $3 million dollars for SCF through its campaigns and initiatives.
