St. Christopher Fund Welcomes New Silver Sponsor & New IdleAir Matching Program
Knoxville, TN — May 20, 2013 — Not only has IdleAir become the newest silver sponsor of The St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund, they have also initiated a unique matching program.
IdleAir, a Knoxville based company, provides truck drivers with an alternative to idling their engines during rest periods. IdleAir service allows drivers to turn off their diesel engines and APUs while still enjoying heating, cooling, 120V power inside and outside the cab, DirecTV, and Internet access—all while saving money and getting better sleep without the noise and vibration from idling. IdleAir supports American energy independence by using homegrown electric power from domestic resources.
IdleAir customers earn Convoy Points™ by using IdleAir services. Convoy Points™ are redeemable for discounted IdleAir services as well as select national retailers, including the major travel center chains. Any time a customer redeems over 100 points for the SCF, IdleAir will match the donation 100%. As an added bonus, any customer redeeming any amount of Convoy Points™ for the SCF will receive an all-weather SCF/IdleAir supporter decal for their truck.
“We want to amplify the voice and impact of our customers through IdleAir’s unlimited matching program,” said Ethan Garber, IdleAir CEO. IdleAir’s Chief Listening Officer, Jeff Maurer, added, “IdleAir is pleased to partner with the St. Christopher Fund to help America’s professional drivers in need of assistance. IdleAir is proud to support The St. Christopher Fund, and the important work they do to assist drivers in times of need.” IdleAir customers can now redeem their Convoy Points™ for the SCF, and double their donations with IdleAir’s 100% matching program.
Dr. Donna Kennedy, Executive Director of the SCF, stated, “We think IdleAir is a great company with a worthy focus on saving drivers money while improving their sleep and protecting their health. We are happy to have IdleAir on board as a new sponsor and we look forward to seeing how the matching program works.”
