TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands, announces their annual campaign donation to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF). As a result of customer and employee donations received during its annual Band Together for SCF campaign, TravelCenters presented a check for $278,095 to the SCF.
By rallying customers and employees around the single cause of helping professional drivers who are suffering financial hardships due to medical problems, TravelCenters has worked to help raise more than $2 million for the fund since 2010.
The Band Together for SCF campaign, which ran during August at 238 TA and Petro Stopping Centers locations nationwide, invited customers and employees to make $1 and $5 donations. One hundred percent of all donations have gone to the SCF.
“We always look forward to our SCF Band Together campaign, knowing that our yearly contribution goes to helping so many drivers in need. I want to personally thank each and every customer and employee that generously contributed this year,” shared Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “We, along with so many professional drivers and their families, are grateful for the SCF. Because of what they do, drivers are able to focus on getting healthy, feeling better and living longer.”
“Once again, TravelCenters of America, their employees and their customers have come through for professional drivers,” said Dr. Donna Kennedy, Executive Director of the SCF. “We feel blessed to be in a position to receive such generous donations; they will go a long way in helping drivers in need. Thanks to this support, more than 1,600 drivers have been assisted.”
