Want to donate instead? There are a couple of charities that support drivers and their family’s well-being.
To help 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. We 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 a CDC approved Diabetes Prevention Program, smoking cessation, health challenges, and free flu, shingles, and pneumonia vaccines. Donate below.
