Volunteers Needed for Cooper Trooper Pumpkin Patch

The Cooper Trooper Foundation is asking volunteers to sign up now for the 2015 Pumpkin Patch. It takes hundreds of volunteers to run the annual fundraiser. From unloading pumpkins for a few hours on a Saturday, or helping sell pumpkins during assigned shifts, you’ll have a great time.

In 2014 over $53,000 was raised to support families battling childhood cancer, through sibling support and pediatric cancer research. Each year the event grows and more money is raised, but more importantly more people are made aware of why The Cooper Trooper Foundation exists, in hopes of supporting families until a cure can be found for pediatric cancer.

Groups, sports teams, churches, schools or clubs are invited to sign up to serve as volunteers for The Cooper Trooper Foundation. Perfect opportunity to plan for groups to learn about giving back while having fun.

The Cooper Trooper Foundation is committed to financially funding pediatric cancer research through an endowed fund set up with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital. To inquire about volunteering, or to make a donation, email [email protected]
