TravelCenters of America Inc. is raising money for truck drivers who are out of work due to a illness or injury, the company announced June 29.

The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SCF) helps over-the-road truck drivers and their families who are out of work due to an illness or injury. TravelCenters is raising money for the charity by letting customers round up their purchases. The campaign is running from July 1 to Sept. 1.

“Providing support for the hardworking men and women who keep our country moving has always been a top priority for everyone at TA,” TravelCenters CEO Jon Pertchik said. “While TA can provide truckers with everything they need when they are on the road, it is the amazing team at SCF that helps them when they are sidelined and cannot be on the road.”

TravelCenters has supported the work of SCF through various campaigns and initiatives since 2010. The company has raised more than $3 million for the charity in that time. The Round Up campaign is an annual event that is among those initiatives. Customers at participating TA, Petro and TA Express locations have the opportunity to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, with the difference donated directly to SCF.

“We are so grateful for the long-standing relationship with the team at TravelCenters of America and for all the support they have given us over the past 12 years,” said Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy at SCF. “Drivers both at home and on the road need our support and the support of our amazing partners and sponsors.”
