Operation Backpack

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, each student received a new backpack filled with 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 Wednesday, August 7, at:

▪ Roberts Pavilion, 1st Floor – Cooper Solutions Center Office
▪ Voorhees – 900 Centennial Blvd., Building One Front Reception
▪ The Cooper Foundation - 3 Cooper Plaza, Suite 500, Camden NJ 08103
For curbside dropoff at 3 Cooper Plaza, please call the Foundation at 856.342.2222 between 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. We will meet you in the horse shoe driveway to collect your backpacks.
