Slideshow image


Summer is just beginning. But we are on a mission!

Do you remember the excitement of getting a new backpack for school?

Cooper is teaming up once again with its neighborhood school to provide backpacks to every student scholar enrolled at KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy! Last year, more than 300 students received backpacks and school supplies through your generosity. 


 Here’s how it works:

  1. Organize your coworkers to collect donations.
  2. Fill a 17" backpack with any or all of the supplies below.
  3. Scour the sales and send bargain shoppers to the store, maximizing every dollar for a great cause!
  4. Take photos! We want to see you shopping! Use #OperationBackpack @CooperFDN on social media.
  5. Drop off backpacks and supplies at any of the following locations NOW through Monday, August 14, at:

▪ Roberts Pavilion, 1st Floor – Cooper Solutions Center Office
▪ MD Anderson Cooper – 2 Haddon Ave., Front Reception
▪ Voorhees – 900 Centennial Blvd., Building One Front Reception
▪ The Cooper Foundation - 2 Aquarium Drive, Ste. 305 - Curbside dropoff available for all CCBO and non-dropoff locations.
Please email zarnosky-danielle@cooperhealth.edu to make arrangements.
