TravelCenters of America Campaign Helps Truckers in Need

As part of its annual “Band Together for SCF” campaign for the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund, TravelCenters of America recently presented a check for more than $241,310.

By rallying customers and employees around the single cause of helping professional drivers who are suffering financial hardship due to medical problems, TravelCenters has provided more than $2.2 million for the fund since 2010.

Band Together ran during August at TA and Petro Stopping Centers locations nationwide, and invited customers and employees to support the cause in helping drivers in need. The campaign provides wristbands, in exchange for donations of $1 and $5, that drivers and others can wear to show their support. TA pays the cost of the wristbands and the organization of the campaign so 100% of all money collected can go to the SCF.

“We’ve been proud to partner with SCF for the past eight years by organizing Band Together. It is truly amazing to see drivers dig deep to help fellow drivers in need. Our company and our employees are honored and proud to stand with drivers, for drivers,” said Tom O’Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters.

Headquartered in Westlake, Ohio, TravelCenters operates in 43 states and Canada, principally under the TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands and the Minit Mart convenience store brand.
