Band Together for the St. Christopher Fund begins Aug. 1

| 6/13/2013

For the fourth annual fundraiser to benefit the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund, TravelCenters of America will have new tricolor blue and tricolor green bands for the campaign. The benefit event that has been a blockbuster money-earner for the St. Christopher Fund begins Aug. 1 and wraps up Aug. 31.

At all TA and Petro locations, trucks, TravelCenters guests and employees are invited to make  a donation of $1 or more and receive a commemorative wristband. Every penny will go to the St. Christopher Fund. SCF is a nonprofit organization that assists truck drivers suffering from financial hardship due to medical problems.

The wristbands will also be available at the TA/Petro booth at the Great American Trucking Show Aug. 22-24 in Dallas.

The third annual Band Together campaign that was held last year raised a record $278,207 for the St. Christopher Fund.
