The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund is a truck driver charity that helps drivers whose medical problems have led to financial hardship. Just before Christmas, the St. Christopher Fund announced that the SCF has given a total of $853,459.35 since the charity’s inception in 2007 and is now well on its way to the $1 million mark.
In 2013, the organization gave $193,339.13 to qualifying truckers and their families. As of December 2014, the SCF has given $316,057.79 for this year.
“In just one week we have given $20,759.45 to support beneficiaries,” said Shannon Currier, operations manager and director of philanthropy and development. “That’s a lot of checks in one week.”
