WESTLAKE, Ohio — TravelCenters of America Inc. (TA) is rounding up assistance for drivers in need.
Through Labor Day, customers at TA, Petro Stopping Centers and TA Express travel stores and fuel stations will be asked to help TA support the St. Christopher's Trucker Relief Fund (SCF) — an organization helping professional drivers who may be out of work due to an illness or injury — by rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar.
TA has raised nearly $3 million for the SCF since 2010.
"We are honored and humbled by the support we receive from TravelCenters of America and its generous customers," SCF director Donna Kennedy said.
"Professional drivers always support each other and we are confident when they see the point-of-sale fundraiser at TA registers across the country, they will be proud to help. This campaign will have an immense impact for those in need."
Westlake-based TA operates more than 270 locations in 44 states and Canada, principally under the TA, Petro Stopping Centers and TA Express brands.
