Since 2010, TravelCenters has collected over $1.7 million in donations for the St. Christopher Trucker’s Development and Relief Fund.
TravelCenters of America LLC and Blue Tiger USA are working together to benefit truck drivers by donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of specially designed Blue Tiger Elite headsets to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF).
On Thurs., Aug. 25, a check in the amount of $105,000 was presented to SCF at 12:45 p.m., during a special press conference at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas, Texas. The check presented to SCF was made possible by Blue Tiger who designated $10 for each headset sold by TravelCenters locations.
“We are so excited about the Blue Tiger Elite headset program with TravelCenters and Blue Tiger USA. Professional drivers know SCF’s primary mission is supporting them through difficult medical issues and this campaign helps us do just that. We are proud of this partnership and this amazing product and thank TravelCenters and Blue Tiger USA for your support,” said Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy and development with SCF.
“We, along with Blue Tiger USA, are thrilled to be able to continue to support SCF,” said Tom O’Brien president and CEO of TravelCenters. “Drivers know how important SCF is to them and their families, and we are honored to be associated with both SCF and Blue Tiger.”
“Professional drivers directly support the U.S. economy and it’s really amazing what the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) has done to support them. TravelCenters of America stepped in to help support this organization without any hesitation. We could not be more proud to partner with TA and Petro Stopping Centers to give back to some of the hardworking people who keep America running,” said Fieras Saah, president of Blue Tiger.
Since 2010, TA’s “Band Together for SCF” annual campaigns and other fundraisers have generated more than $1.7 million in donations to help with financial support when drivers are off the road due to medical issues.
