For the second year in a row, Local 5118 RNs at Cooper University hospital have given a substantial donation to the Fellowship House in Camden. After collecting $1,500 from the local’s membership, local officers presented the money (and a symbolic check representing the amount) to the non-profit organization.
The local also purchased healthy snacks for all of the kids.
This year the Fellowship House of South Camden is celebrating their 50th anniversary. Fellowship House offers an after-school program and a reading enrichment program for grades 1-4, summer camp for children entering grades 1-4, an evening program for youth and job training for teens. Fellowship House also provides evening programming to support the children’s parents.(Photo to the right: Local 5118 President Doris Bell with one of the kids who participates in Fellowship House programs)
