Have you ever wondered how you can give back to the industry and honor a valued member of our large trucking family at the same time? We have the answer for you!
Jim Johnston believed in the mission of St. Christopher Fund and was an avid supporter since its inception. In 1973, Jim with the help of others, formed Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association, OOIDA. Jim was elected president of OOIDA in 1974. This was a title he held up until his passing. After Mr. Johnston’s passing, Dr. John McElligott and Dr. Donna Kennedy were discussing ways to honor his legacy of helping drivers during a medical crisis. Hence, ‘Jim’s Day’ was created. People could honor Jim on his birthday by offering a memorial in his name. All donations will go directly to SCF and will be used to help “Save Lives & Families, One Driver At A Time’.
We, at St. Christopher Fund, are privileged to be allowed to carry on Jim’s legacy of generosity. He was known in the trucking world as having an unrelenting commitment to small business truckers. It was his passion.
