St. Christopher Fund

TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® and Blue Tiger USA® Partner to benefit St. Christopher Fund.

Have you ever been off the road due to medical reasons? Or maybe you know a fellow driver who has? It can be a very scary situation for drivers and their families. Loss of income while shouldering the worry of medical problems makes for a much more stressful situation.

This is why TA and Petro Stopping Centers have partnered with Blue Tiger USA to benefit St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund. Blue Tiger designed a version of the Elite headset with the SCF logo and signature blue color. The headsets are available exclusively at participating TA and Petro travel stores through the end of the year.

For each headset sold, $10 will be donated to SCF. It’s expected that more than $40,000 will be donated to SCF just through the sale of these headsets.

One driver who was helped by SCF explained, “I applied for financial assistance from the St. Christopher Fund the same month I had my triple bypass surgery and was given $700. Without this aid, my daughter and I would have been homeless. I honestly cannot express the relief it was to know that yes, the rent is paid. Yes, we still have a home. It may not seem that important to some, but the St. Christopher Fund has made a vital impact on my recovery.” The St. Christopher’s Truckers Development and Relief Fund help professional drivers and their families who have financial needs due to medical problems. Their assistance may be in the form of direct payment for medical services, prescription drugs, and household expenses. This can be a huge help for truckers that have no one else to turn to.

The Blue Tiger Blue Elite headset retails for $139.99, but will be offered at a promotional price of $119.97 today through August 31, 2017. The headset provides drivers with 34 hours of talk time and 600 hours standby. The multimedia works with music and GPS. The VOXPRO chip also provides drivers with advanced noise cancellation.

Please consider purchasing a headset – you’ll get high quality Bluetooth® wireless performance -- and you’ll be helping a fellow trucker in need.

If you or a fellow trucker are in need of assistance or you want to donate, reach out to the SCF at 865-202-9428 or contact@truckersfund.org and visit their website at www.truckersfund.org.
