Nearly 300 employees from the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) participated in a companywide walk on Wednesday, November 15 at the organization’s Boca Raton campus in celebration of Kids’ Chance Awareness Week.
Kids’ Chance of America was established to provide educational opportunities and scholarship support for the children of workers seriously or fatally injured on the job. Kids’ Chance of Florida, a newly formed state chapter of the national organization, has awarded 13 scholarships totaling over $48,000 since it was created in December 2015. Kids’ Chance Awareness Week was created to increase the organization’s visibility and spread awareness on the scholarship opportunities.
“Kids’ Chance is a perfect organization for NCCI to support. Their mission of providing scholarships to children with a parent that has been severely injured in the workplace is certainly close to our hearts,” said Bill Donnell, NCCI President and CEO. “Seeing our employees participating in our Awareness Walk with so much energy and enthusiasm goes to show how important this cause is to so many people.”
During the event, Donnell presented a check for $9,000 to Ray Neff, President of Kids’ Chance of Florida.
“It was an honor to walk alongside the NCCI team and participate in the company’s Kids’ Chance Awareness Walk,” said Neff. “On behalf of our Board of Directors, I want to sincerely thank NCCI and their employees for the financial contribution. It’s donations like these that make it possible for us to award scholarships to such deserving children.”
