OKLAHOMA CITY — Love’s Travel Stops is donating $100,000 to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund.
This is the third year the company has given to the organization that helps professional truck drivers and their families during difficult times.
“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,’’ Jenny Love Meyer, executive vice president and chief culture officer of Love’s,” said. “St. Christopher is a great organization that helps drivers every day, and we’re glad to continue to support the organization.”
Love’s first donated to St. Christopher in April 2020 when the company gave $100,000 to help drivers during the coronavirus pandemic.
The relief fund helps with expenses like rent, mortgage, utilities, insurance and vehicle payments, as well as provides free health and wellness programs for drivers.
“The support St. Christopher Fund provides for professional drivers is possible because of the generosity of companies like Love’s Travel Stops,” Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy for St. Christopher, said. “We greatly appreciate Love’s commitment to help us be a safety net for drivers when they need it most.”
