A Truck Driver Charity: The St. Christopher Fund
The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund (SCF) is a 501(c)(3), truck driver charity that helps drivers whose medical problems that have occurred within the last two years have led to financial hardship. The SCF is also working to provide programs that will benefit professional drivers and the trucking industry.
9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
The SCF helps semi-truck drivers and their families who have financial needs due to current medical problems. Assistance may be in the form of paying living expenses while recovering from illness and out of work, providing information on how to negotiate price reductions with medical providers and hospitals and/or direct payment for medical services or prescription drugs. We normally do NOT pay medical bills.
After witnessing hundreds of truck drivers and their families struggle to survive as a result of catastrophic illness or injury, Dave Nemo, host of the Dave Nemo Show (XM Radio Channel 171 – Open Road) was compelled to take action. He found a willing partner in Dr. John McElligott (“Dr. John”). Together, they launched a truck driver charity to come to the aid of professional drivers in need. The organization was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2007.
