Celebrate Kids’ Chance Awareness Week through Involvement

Posted on by

kids-chance-of-nebraskaKids’ Chance Awareness Week is going on right now. Nebraska and 35 other states have organizations that provide postsecondary and trade-school scholarships to the children of workers who have been severely or fatally injured in a workplace accident.

As a founder of Kids’ Chance of Nebraska, along with Lincoln lawyer Dallas Jones, I am pleased to celebrate this week by announcing that five students have received scholarships this year through the nonprofit statewide organization. Two of the five students are repeat scholarship winners!

This excellent website tells the important stories of students nationwide who have benefited from scholarships, so I encourage you to take the time to click on the Faces of Kids’ Chance. Then, if so moved, feel free to support Kids’ Chance of Nebraska by attending the upcoming bowling event on Jan. 23, 2017, or donating funds to go toward scholarships through the KCNE website.

The employees at Rehm, Bennett & Moore and Trucker Lawyers will continue to support Kids’ Chance of Nebraska with our time and donations.

A major way that Kids’ Chance helps students is with the Planning for College Initiative. This program is designed to reach potential scholarship applicants, regardless of their age. We collect and maintain contact information for identified students and communicate with them when the time comes to start considering college. Awareness Week is pivotal in helping us identify these students. If you or someone you know is eligible for a Kids’ Chance scholarship, please visit Planning for College and submit a form.

We believe that investing in the educational future of children affected by a familial workplace injury will make a difference in their lives and subsequently help the lives of others. Although Kids’ Chance reaches hundreds of students each year across our 36 state organizations, we know that there are more students in need of assistance. Awareness Week will help us extend our reach and identify more students. We are all focused on this guiding principle: More money for more kids!

The mission of Kids’ Chance of Nebraska is to provide scholarships to children of workers who have been injured or killed on the job. Collectively, we have awarded 5,593 scholarships across the country, totaling over $16,592,000 in 36 states.
