Love’s Travel Stops recently announced a donation to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund.

On August 16, Love’s announced that it had donated $100,000 to the St. Christopher fund as a way of showing support for the trucking community.

The St. Christopher fund helps professional drivers who are struggling to pay bills due to an illness or injury. The St. Christopher fund can help these drivers with expenses like rent, mortgage, utilities, insurance and vehicle payments, as well as provides free health and wellness programs for members of the trucking community.

“Professional truck drivers are essential to the country’s success, and Love’s can’t think of a better way to say ‘thank you’ than supporting them during difficult times,’’ said Jenny Love Meyer, executive vice president and chief culture officer of Love’s. “St. Christopher is a great organization that helps drivers every day, and we’re glad to continue to support the organization.”

“The support St. Christopher Fund provides for professional drivers is possible because of the generosity of companies like Love’s Travel Stops,” says Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy for St. Christopher. “We greatly appreciate Love’s commitment to help us be a safety net for drivers when they need it most.”

This marks the third year in a row that Love’s has donated to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund.
