Cooper’s Adopt-A-Family Program A Resounding Success

As the holiday season wraps up, The Cooper Foundation is pleased to announce the success of Cooper’s participation in the Volunteers of America – Delaware Valley “Adopt-A-Family” program.

According to organizers at the Foundation, 58 families (representing approximately 200 people in total) were adopted by Cooper. For all families, children received a new outfit and toys from wish lists they had submitted. Each family also was provided with a food store gift card, enabling them to enjoy a plentiful holiday meal.

Volunteers of America – Delaware Valley expressed its amazement and sincere gratitude for the overwhelming generosity Cooper employees showed towards the program.
