Your Generosity Made it a Holiday of Hope for Camden Families
Thanks to generous donations, The Cooper Foundation spread holiday cheer by providing more than 150 holiday meals for families in the Cooper Plaza and Lanning Square neighborhoods to cook at home. In addition to the turkeys and all the fixings, the Foundation also distributed new books and toys to children.  

This winter, The Cooper Foundation donated more than 200 new winter coats and gloves to students at the KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy.

Also in December, for the ninth year in a row, Cooper employees "adopted" 150 families through a partnership with Volunteers of America Delaware Valley. Through the generosity of Cooper employees, families in need received toys, clothing, shoes, housewares, grocery store gift cards and more to celebrate the holiday season.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the holidays brighter for our neighbors.
