Charity Benefiting Truckers in Need Reaches $3 MILLION Milestone
Knoxville, TN – The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SCF) has hit a major milestone since the nonprofit’s inception more than a decade ago.
According to a recent announcement, SCF says it has given $3 million in financial assistance on behalf of over-the-road semi-truck drivers and their families in need.
The amount has helped 2,805 drivers and their families who have suffered financial hardship due to an illness or injury that caused the driver to be out of work for an extended period of time.
“We are incredibly proud to achieve this milestone because we know that we have helped many drivers and their families,” said Donna Kennedy, SCF’s Executive Director. “We know there are more drivers to help, and we look forward to providing critical assistance during a difficult time.”
In 2019 alone, SCF says it has given $487,000 on behalf of 344 truckers and their families.
Since 2008, over 3,000 professional drivers have applied for assistance.
The top diagnoses from the applicant pool includes serious medical issues such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer, SCF says.
SCF also assists the driving community in battling obesity by providing health and wellness programs to help educate and support driver health.
