How Kids’ Chance of America Unites the Industry

myMatrixx President, Mike Cirillo, recently shared his thoughts on the importance of Kids' Chance of America (KCOA) in an article for industry publication Risk & Insurance. KCOA is a charitable organization that awards scholarships to the children of workers who are critically or fatally injured on the job. As a national supporting partner, myMatrixx is proud to further the KCOA mission and help these children realize their educational dreams.

Throughout the piece, Cirillo talks about the motivating factors that drive many in the workers’ compensation industry to support this great cause. In an often competitive field, he sees KCOA as a great way for leaders to work together and make a difference in the lives of injured workers and their families. Cirillo serves as a member of the national fundraising committee and the advisory board for KCOA, providing a direct impact on their ability to raise money and distribute scholarship funds to deserving kids.
