Students in Camden are a little warmer today after a team of doctors, nurses and administrators from Cooper University Health Care visited H.B. Wilson Elementary School to deliver hundreds of sweatshirts.
The sweatshirts, emblazoned with the word “Camden,” were intended as a token of goodwill and community from the hospital to the young residents of the city and, according to George Norcross, a member of the board of trustees at Cooper, a way for students to show pride in their city.
“It’s been a long time since people walked around in sweatshirts that have ‘Camden’ on them,” Norcross said on Monday. “We want to help restore a little pride.”
All told, Cooper will provide 14,000 sweatshirts to students of all ages throughout the Camden School District. Monday’s event launched the program.
