TravelCenters of America Donates Nearly $25,000 to St. Christopher Fund

TravelCenters of America has donated $24,960 to the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SCF), as part of a candy promotion with World’s Finest Chocolate (WFC). In February, guests visiting TA’s travel stores had the opportunity to purchase a WFC candy bar at the registers, with a portion of the proceeds going to SCF, a nonprofit offering financial assistance to ill or injured professional drivers and health and wellness programs. 

“We’re pleased to offer this donation to the St. Christopher Trucker’s Relief Fund,” said Barry Richards, president of TA. “We’re grateful for the millions of professional drivers who are the backbone of the trucking industry and will continue doing what we can to support such an important organization.”

"It means so much to have major organizations embedded in the trucking industry always thinking about how they can help drivers," said Donna Kennedy, executive director of SCF. "TravelCenters of America is a consistent supporter of ours and we're so grateful for their creativity and commitment to further our mission."

TA began its support of SCF in 2010 and has raised nearly $3 million for the organization.
