In observance of National Volunteer Month, senior leaders and staff at Cooper University Health Care recognized the hundreds of dedicated men and women who donate their time and efforts to support the hospital’s mission, to serve, to heal and to educate.
On April 21, 2010 Cooper University Hospital honored its dedicated volunteers at a Recognition Luncheon at One Cooper Plaza. Cooper has over 550 volunteers who work both in the main hospital and at auxiliary fundraisers. In 2009, they collectively gave almost 55,000 hours of their time and services.
(Camden, New Jersey) Cooper University Hospital is calling all clowns! The all too familiar Bumper “T” Caring Clowns are on a mission looking for enthusiastic and fun-loving individuals to jump on board and join the crew. For over 30 years, George Edwards aka, Bumper “T” Clown of Barrington, New Jersey, has devoted his life to making people laugh. He had become such an inspiration to his patients and fellow students (who also volunteer in the hospital) that in 1998 they began calling themselves The Bumper “T” Caring Clowns to honor the man who taught them all. Since then, the program’s success hadonly continued to grow. In April 2002, the original staff of five (including George Edwards) developed a training program in which individuals could join the team and volunteer their services to the hospital.
