…..And that’s a wrap on the 2nd Annual Coop’s Troop Holiday Toy Drive in memory of sweet, Cooper.
It wraps up, ironically on December 19th; 11 months since Coop went home to heaven.
💜 Over 800 toys and items were donated to Boston Children’s Hospital for children in the hospital this holiday season and for use by Child Life Services for patients.
💜 over 1200 toys and items were picked up by My Brother’s Keeper, that will go to children and families in need.
💜 35+ families received specific wishes from Coop’s Troop angels that made so many holiday wishes come to life.
💜 Families and other organizations that needed help this past week with not only toy needs, but other items. This year the toy drive became so much more than just a TOY drive.
The Coop’s Troop Foundation, the toy drive and the 5k only carry on because of all of you.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Cooper must be so proud of every one of you. 💜
Thank you for always honoring him to the fullest.
Have a very Merry Christmas.
~The Richards Family.
