Where There Is a Need, They Don’t Hesitate to Help

When the Child Life team issued a request for help, Cooper’s therapy teams responded. Jamie Rubino coordinated the efforts and collected donations during the span of a few days. More than 25 team members contributed over $350 to purchase toys and supplies for children in need. Ryan Murphy and Mayumi Ishihara-Davis supported the effort by selecting the toys once the donations came it. Therapists from all rehabilitation disciplines participated, including occupational, physical, and speech therapy. Great job team! We’re proud of how the group is always helping those in need!
