Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores Inc. has contributed $100,000 to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) to help professional drivers who can’t work due to illness or injury.
“This donation reflects our belief that professional truck drivers are the backbone of the U.S., especially during this challenging time,” says Jenny Love Meyer, executive vice president and chief culture officer of Love’s Travel Stops. “This contribution enables us to help drivers with immediate needs when they are unable to work due to COVID-19 or other medical issues.”
SCF is a nonprofit organization that helps professional drivers and their families when an illness or injury causes them to be out of work. This fund helps with expenses like rent or mortgage, utilities, insurance and vehicle payments.
“We cannot thank Love’s Travel Stops enough for this generous donation," says Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy and development for SCF. "Professional drivers are vital to our everyday lives, and it is humbling to see their commitment. Even during this national pandemic, they are continuing to deliver the essential supplies we all need. These men and women are the heroes of the highway during this crucial time, and we are honored to be here to support them when they need us most.”
