Truckers help TA-Petro raise $245,000 for St. Christopher Fund

TravelCenters of America announced last week truck drivers helped raise nearly $245,000 for the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund as part of its “Band Together for SCF” campaign.

The total amount raised for the campaign, which was held Aug. 15 through Sept. 30, was $244,849. Truckers were able to donate $1 or $5 and received wristbands, window clings and keychains in exchange for the contributions.

“I want to give thanks to TravelCenters for another year of Band Together. This campaign is such a great example of how easy it is for people to help people. We always love to see the generosity of drivers and employees,” said Dr. Donna Kennedy, executive director of the SCF.

As of July 2018, SCF has helped more than 2,300 truck drivers and their families with monthly bills, including utilities and mortgages, totaling $2.3 million.
