TravelCenters of America, operator of TA and Petro Stopping Centers, has partnered with Blue Tiger USA to benefit truck drivers through the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) with a portion of the proceeds from sales of specially designed Blue Tiger Elite headsets.

A check in the amount of $105,000 has been presented during a special press conference at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas, Texas. The check presented to SCF was made possible by Blue Tiger, which designated $10 for each headset sold by TravelCenters locations.

“We are so excited about the Blue Tiger Elite headset program with TravelCenters and Blue Tiger USA. Professional drivers know SCF’s primary mission is supporting them through difficult medical issues and this campaign helps us do just that. We are proud of this partnership and this amazing product and thank TravelCenters and Blue Tiger USA for their support,” said Shannon Currier, director of philanthropy and development with SCF.

Since 2010, TA’s “Band Together for SCF” annual campaigns and other fundraisers have generated more than $1.7 million in donations to help with financial support when drivers are off the road due to medical issues.
