Biggam Fox Skinner LLP Supports Kids' Chance Awareness Week

November 12th-16th was Kids’ Chance Awareness Week, and our own Heidi Groff attended Governor Phil Scott’s signing of the event, together with Chaice Lopez, a young Vermonter from Morrisville who is attending college thanks to a scholarship from Kids' Chance.

In addition to helping clients with their workers’ compensation and personal injury cases, attorney Groff also serves as the vice president of Kids' Chance of Vermont.

When a family suffers a dramatic drop in income because a parent sustained an injury at work and is unable to return to their job, it can be extremely difficult to pay for the children’s higher education. Kids’ Chance of Vermont is a non-profit that offers scholarships to children of injured workers. Thanks to the efforts of this non-profit organization, two young Vermonters whose parents suffered on-the-job injuries are now pursuing their college dreams.

Kids' Chance awarded two scholarships totaling $22,000 to Andrea Tester of Rutland. Andrea currently attends Castleton University where she is studying to become a teacher. Chaice Lopez was also awarded a $10,000 scholarship by Kids' Chance. Chaice is studying engineering at Vermont Technical College.

Speaking about the scholarship awards, attorney Groff said, “Kids’ Chance is a fantastic opportunity for families to afford higher education for their kids. If you have suffered a serious workplace injury and you have a child at or approaching college age, get in touch with us to see if Kids' Chance can help. E-mail or call us at 1-800-INJURED."
