LOUISVILLE, KY… TA/Petro is
the first travel plaza chain to raise funds to benefit Truckers Against
Trafficking (TAT). The organization
builds awareness and provides a hotline to combat human trafficking.
Because Professional Truck Drives are everywhere, the trucking industry is a first responder to human trafficking. Since its inception, Truckers Against Trafficking has received over 2,200 phone calls on their hotline.
TA/Petro partnered with High Noon Sales, which donated most of the merchandise that was used to raise money for TAT at TA/Petro Travel Plazas. A grand total of $112,946.00 was donated to Truckers Against Trafficking. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center’s hotline phone number is 1-888-373-7888.
