Customers and employees of national truckstop chain TravelCenters of America LLC joined forces in October this year to raise $211,115 for the St. Christopher Trucker Development and Relief Fund.
For this particular charity drive, employees at participating TA and Petro Stopping Centers locations asked customers to purchase silicone wristbands for $1 each throughout the month of October. Employees also donated.
The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance to truck drivers who have medical problems and cannot otherwise afford healthcare. For more information, please visit www.truckersfund.com.
