TravelCenters of America launched this week its 10th annual Band Together campaign to support the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund. The month-long campaign will run at participating TA, Petro and TA Express travel centers through July 31.
Throughout the month, TA, Petro and TA Express customers can make a donation of $1 or more. Commemorative wristbands will be given to those making a $1 donation, while $5 donors will receive metal keychains.
All donations go directly to the SCF to provide financial assistance to over-the-road and regional professional truck drivers who are unable to work due to medical issues. The SCF assists with mortgage/rent, utilities, vehicle payments and insurance bills while drivers are out of work.
The “Band Together for SCF” annual campaign marks the largest single contribution the fund receives each year. As of last month, the SCF has helped more than 2,700 truck drivers and their families with monthly bills totaling more than $2.7 million.
