Operation Backpack Fills Needs for New School Year

Cooper University Hospital has partnered with the Center for Family Services in a unique school supply collection drive to benefit local children in need.

“Operation Backpack” brings Cooper employees together in teams to purchase new backpacks and fill them with new office and school supplies to help area students be well-prepared for the new school year.

“The response has been tremendous so far,” said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of The Cooper Foundation. “Cooper employees have thought of everything. These school supplies will make a big difference to children in our community.”

“Operation Backpack” continues through this Friday, August 12.
