Student Transportation of America (STA), a school transportation and fleet services provider, has kicked off an employee giving campaign to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in making a significant, positive impact on families in need. As part of STA's "Driving for a Cure" employee giving program, the company has committed a donation match of up to $100,000 for any funds raised by STA employees.

"STA believes there is more to being a best-in-class transportation provider than delivering safe, reliable service. As a company, we are a family business rooted in our commitment to the communities we serve. Therefore, St. Jude is a natural fit to support through an employee giving program," said Patrick Vaughan, CEO of STA. "We align in our values of having a family-first approach and are honored to do our part to support the mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children."

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and the organization expects to continue this fight until no child dies from cancer.

The support given to the hospital helps ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.

Said Vaughan: "We are fortunate in that the mission of St. Jude is a cause many of our employees are passionate about. Family is part of our culture and through our giving program, 'Driving for a Cure,' we hope to encourage more of our team members to come together and raise funds or volunteer to support this organization. We have a social responsibility to support children and families, but it's so much more than that. This is our chance as an STA family to make a real difference."
