Every year, the Friends of 440, a charitable organization comprised of people who work in the Florida workers’ compensation system, grants scholarship funds to deserving kids whose parents are involved in the workers’ compensation system as, for example, lawyers, insurance adjusters, medical personnel who treat workers’ compensation patients, and, of course, injured workers.
