Trucker Wayne, Driver Solutions and the St. Christopher Trucker Development and Relief Fund (SCF) are teaming up to support the truck driving industry as the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps across the nation. We know that truckers are the backbone of this country, especially in these trying times, but we also know that many of our fellow drivers may be affected by this virus. This could result in very difficult times financially for drivers and their families.
We have decided to take action and raise money for The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund who is needing our support more than ever during this time.
Please see their update about the COVID-19 situation: https://truckersfund.org/covid-19-an-update-from-our-executive-director-and-how-to-help/
The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) is a 501(c)(3), truck driver charity that helps over-the-road/regional semi-truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury, occurring within the last year, has caused them to be out of work. The SCF is also working to provide programs that will benefit professional drivers and the trucking industry.
About St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund
Since 2007, they have helped over-the-road/regional semi-truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury has recently caused them to be out of work. Assistance may be in the form of direct payment to providers for household living expenses such as rent/mortgage, utilities, vehicle payments, and insurance. The SCF provides all applicants with information on how to negotiate price reductions with medical providers and hospitals. They normally do NOT pay medical bills. To provide health and wellness programs for drivers in hopes to prevent some medical illnesses. Some of these programs include health challenges, smoking cessation, and free flu, shingles and pneumonia vaccines.
It is very important for truck drivers to know that we are here to help them in a time of need, just like they are always here for us. They sacrifice their health to get essential goods delivered on time so we have supplies when we need them the most. Please reach out if you are a truck driver that has been affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, we are here to help!
