WESTLAKE, Ohio — TravelCenters of America has donated $24,960 to the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SCF) — a truck driver charity that helps over-the-road/regional semi-truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury occurs — as part of a promotion with World's Finest Chocolate (WFC).
Consumers who visited TA's travel store in February had the chance to buy WFC candy bar at registers, with a portion of the proceeds going to SCF.
TA began to support SCF in 2010 and has raised nearly $3 million for the organization.
Barry Richards, president of TA, said the firm is "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," SCF Executive Director Donna Kennedy said. "TravelCenters of America is a consistent supporter of ours and we're so grateful for their creativity and commitment to further our mission."
