We Provide College Scholarships to the Children of Maryland's Seriously Injured Workers
Every year, thousands of workers are disabled by on-the-job injuries in Maryland. Tragically, on average, about 60 workers in Maryland lose their lives every year. It’s the families and, in particular, the children who are many times forgotten when these losses occur. Kids’ Chance of Maryland, Inc. provides an opportunity for these children to pursue their education, reach their goals, and fulfill their dreams for the future.
The updated (2015) scholarship application is now available.
Kids' Chance of Maryland Honors Workers' Memorial Day
April 28th is Workers' Memorial Day. On that day, the thousands of men and women who lost their lives in workplace accidents during the past year in the U.S. will be remembered for the sacrifice they have made. Ceremonies all across the country will honor these fallen workers and their families. A unifying theme of these ceremonies will be "Remember the Dead; Fight for the Living."
In Maryland, 44 men and women were killed in work-related accidents in 2014. Amonog these were three public safety employees who put their lives on the line for our protection. We mourn their deaths and express our gratitude for their service in all aspects of the workforce. Everyone is called upon to do what they can to improve the safety of our workplaces.
Many of these fallen workers leave families behind. Many leave children who now must face futures without a parent or guardian to provide the support and guidance they had relied upon. Kids' Chance recognizes this need and exists to help these children pursue their dreams of an education. Kids' Chance works to memorialize the men and women who lose their lives in workplace accidents by providing scholarship assistance to their children. By doing so, Kids' Chance seeks to create hope from tragedy and to honor our fallen workers by building the next generation.
On April 28th -- and every day -- please join us as we "Remember the Dead and Fight for the Living" by making a contribution to our vital scholarship fund. Just click here to help.
