American Defense Lawyers will make a $25 donation match, up to $5,000, to the St. Christopher Fund for every new Women in Trucking membership from March 23, 2013, to March 14, 2014.
Antoinette Martinez, President of American Defense Lawyers, shared the news about their donation to the SCF just before the Mid-America Trucking Show. Martinez’s California-based company works to fairly represent truck drivers on a number of legal issues.
ADL is hoping that their matching contributions will be beneficial to all three companies: Women in Trucking members will get satisfaction from knowing they have helped other drivers, the SCF will receive a donation, and ADL will become recognized as a supporter of both companies and of truckers in general.
The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance to professional truck drivers whose medical problems led to financial difficulty. Assistance includes help negotiating doctor/hospital bills, finding local resources, and paying for expenses such as mortgage, utility, car payments, and prescriptions. All donations to the Fund are tax-deductible. For more information, please visit truckersfund.org or call 865-202-9428.
