This afternoon, the Cooper Foundation spread holiday cheer by providing more than 150 holiday meals for families in the Cooper Plaza and Lanning Square neighborhoods to cook at home. In addition to the turkeys and all the fixings, the Foundation also distributed new books and toys to the children.

“Each year, employees from Cooper University Health Care make it a priority to give back to our neighbors in need,” stated Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of the Cooper Foundation. “Everyone deserves a reason to smile, especially during the holidays.”

This winter, the Cooper Foundation also donated more than 200 new winter coats and gloves to students at the KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy.

Earlier this month, for the ninth year in a row, Cooper employees “adopted” 150 families through a partnership with Volunteers of America Delaware Valley.  Through the generosity of Cooper employees, families in need received toys, clothing, shoes, housewares, grocery store gift cards and more to celebrate the holiday season.
