The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund announced the Trucking Cares Foundation, the charitable organization of the American Trucking Associations, has donated $10,000 to the fund, which helps truck drivers and their families while they recover from injury or illness, as well as supports the overall health and wellness of truck drivers.
“The Trucking Cares Foundation is pleased to make this contribution to the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund. Their work in aiding drivers and their families is so important and we are proud to help them with their mission,” says John Lynch, Senior Vice President, Federation Relations, American Trucking Associations, Inc.
Taking Action in the Community
The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund was founded in 2008 by Dr. John McElligott (“Dr. John”), radio host Dave Nemo of the Dave Nemo Show (XM Radio Channel 146), and his business partner Michael Burns.
It all started when Dr. John felt compelled to act after witnessing hundreds of truck drivers and their families struggle to survive as a result of catastrophic illness or injury. Dr. John found willing partners in Dave and Michael and together they launched the truck driver charity to come to the aid of professional drivers in need.
To date, the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund has provided $4.4-plus million directly to bill holders on behalf of 3,669-plus professional drivers.
