I also donated during the Band together fund raiser with TA/Petro truck stops. I needed some help with utilities and rent when my back was so bad I had to get medical treatment for 3 months on a regular basis in 2014. They have also helped me with staying healthy after returning to driving with diet and exercise meetings with a coach in a webinar with other drivers in 2017.

I began to work with The St Christopher Fund in August of 2012. I didn't know much about the trucking industry when I started. I have learned so much about the men and women that we serve. The drivers are hard working people who have health issues and temporarily need a helping hand. Helping professional drivers with financial difficulties is a service that is greatly needed.The people at St Christopher Fund truly care about the drivers and their welfare. I am honored to have been a part of this organization and hope it continues to grow so that more drivers can be helped.
