WorkCare Gives Back to the Community
In support of our mission, WorkCare is pleased to sponsor events and contribute to organizations that support occupational health and safety initiatives, higher education for EH&S professionals and programs for at-risk youth.
ASSE Foundation 5K Fun Run – Sponsor
WorkCare is excited to sponsor the ASSE Foundation’s inaugural More Fun than Run 5K. The run will be held June 5, 2018, in conjunction with Safety2018, the American Society of Safety Engineer’s annual national conference and expo in San Antonio, TX. Proceeds will support scholarships for college students attaining a safety-related degree, career planning and leadership development for young professionals, advanced EH&S degree programs and research grants.
The foundation has awarded more than $2.6 million in scholarships to college students beginning their studies in occupational safety and health. To enroll in the conference and sign up for the run, click here.
Kids’ Chance of California – Sponsor/Donor
Kids’ Chance of California is a non-profit organization that awards need-based educational scholarships to the children of California workers who have been fatally or seriously injured on the job. The state organization operates independently under the auspices of Kids’ Chance of America, which was founded in 1988 in Georgia. There are Kids’ Chance organizations in most states. Kids’ Chance of California makes a significant difference in the lives of children who would otherwise not be able to pursue higher education due to income loss associated with a parent’s death or long-term disability. Kids’ Chance of America was the official charity of the 2017 National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference & Expo.
Actively Reaching Kids (ARK) – Event Sponsor
Actively Reaching Kids (ARK) is a faith-based organization that supports at-risk youth ages 10 to 17 in the Los Angeles area by providing opportunities to attend gatherings in the city and camps in the mountains. WorkCare was a sponsor of the first annual ARK Open, a golf fund-raising event, held Nov. 20, 2017, in Newport Beach, Calif.
