TravelCenters of America and the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund are partnering for their annual month-long Band Together fundraising campaign for the fund in August. The fund supports truckers who face financial hardships due to medical problems.
Throughout the month of August, customers at participating TA and Petro locations can purchase commemorative wristbands for $1 or St. Christopher Fund keychains for $5. All of the proceeds go to the St. Christopher Fund.
Donna Kennedy, executive director for St. Christopher Fund, said they see an increased number of applications for assistance during and immediately after the campaign.
“We are so excited for another year of Band Together. This campaign is instrumental in allowing us the honor of offering assistance to drivers in need,” Kennedy said.
