Kids’ Chance Awareness Week Puts Children of Injured Vermont Workers In the Spotlight
Do you know of a student who faces obstacles to a college education because of a parent’s work injury? Kids’ Chance provides ways for you to help them! One easy way is to fill out a Planning for College Card for the student and return it to Biggam, Fox & Skinner at 453 Stone Cutters Way, Montpelier, VT 05602. At the right time, we will contact you to start the scholarship application process so that the student may be considered for a scholarship.
During Kids’ Chance Awareness Week, we’re asking you to help spread the word about Kids’ Chance of Vermont to deserving students and their parents. To do this, you can like our Facebook page, share this article on social media, or forward this newsletter to someone who might benefit. Biggam, Fox & Skinner is actively involved in Kids’ Chance: BFS partner Heidi Groff serves as vice president of the organization, and the partners as well as the firm contribute financially. Some of our clients have been exceptionally generous and made significant contributions. Also, the child of an injured worker we represent has been the recipient of a scholarship from Kids’ Chance.

About Kids’ Chance
Kids’ Chance of Vermont is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to children of workers who have been injured or killed at work in Vermont. It is managed by a volunteer board of workers’ compensation professionals from the areas of law, insurance, vocational rehabilitation, and state government. The first Kids’ Chance organization was founded in 1988 by a workers’ compensation attorney in Georgia. Through his work he had witnessed the life-shattering impact of a serious or fatal workplace injury on the worker’s children, who were faced with the difficulty of having to fund their own education. Collectively, Kids’ Chance organizations have awarded 5,593 scholarships across the country, totaling over $16 million.
