Camden Celebrates Opening of New Turf Field at KIPP Cooper Norcross Lanning Square Campus
KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy (KCNA) celebrated the opening of a new synthetic turf field at its Lanning Square campus in Camden, which was installed thanks to a $250,000 grant from the Philadelphia Eagles through the National Football League Foundation Grassroots Program and a $250,000 matching grant from The Cooper Foundation.

“We are here to demonstrate our belief in the young residents of Camden and this new field confirms our investment in our students’ health, recreation and future,” said George E. Norcross, III. “I’d like to personally thank The NFL Foundation and the Eagles for their commitment to Camden.”

The 140’ x 240’ synthetic turf field provides new opportunities for the 1,200 students at KCNA and new partnerships with the Camden Health and Athletic Association (CHAA) to expand access to youth sports in the city with a safe, reliable and flexible athletic field to support a variety of recreation activities, including flag football.

Community Partner Spotlight: Operation Snack Bags
“Resting in your therapy chair, know that there are those who care.”

And thanks to The Women’s Council of Realtors Southern NJ Chapter, many of our patients at
MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, know that there are those that care. Our chemotherapy and radiation patients received 90 care bags filled with snacks, treats, comfort items, and notes from Charleen Orzechowski and her colleagues who raised funds and worked together to package the bags for Cooper's Tea Cart Program. 

“Our local chapter of the Women's Council of Realtors has been a proud supporter of The Cooper Foundation for the past five years and we wanted to expand our commitment to the organization,” said Orzechowski. “Our assembly line was full of love, hope and support for the men and women courageously fighting cancer.”  

The Women’s Council of Realtors SNJ also hosts an annual fundraiser, Bras for a Cause, raising $21,000 last year for Pink Roses Teal Magnolias .

Thank you to the Women’s Council of Realtors Southern NJ Chapter for being a generous Community Partner.
