Operation Back To School Letters White

Operation Back To School

Each year, The Cooper Foundation teams up with KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy (KCNA) to provide every student enrolled with a new backpack and school supplies to start the school year off right. The Cooper Foundation orders backpacks and supplies, geared to the teachers’ requests, and have them shipped directly to the 4 KCNA schools in Camden for distribution on the first day of school.

Cooper Employees have been the driving force behind Operation Back to School. In the past 5 years, thanks to our generous employees, The Cooper Foundation have donated more than 7,000 brand new backpacks.

Monetary donations help support The Cooper Foundation’s Operation Back to School initiative by ensuring every KCNA student scholar has the tools they need for a successful school year.

Whether you choose to organize your coworkers and collect money as a group, or make an individual donation, your kindness will make an impact.

When you purchase your backpack, be sure to leave a note of encouragement in the comment section, and we will place it in the backpack for the students to see!
