Helping Comfort Other Children Continues to be a Project for Local Boy

Cooper Holloway continues to help comfort children at medical facilities with his “Cooper’s Care Cases”. Cooper recently donated approximately 200 “cases” (draw-string bags) to Memorial Hospital in Abilene. They will be given to children who are patients in the Emergency Department, Laboratory, Radiology, Inpatient Unit, and Heartland Health Care Clinic. Cooper had help from family and friends creating and filling the “cases”. They contain a notebook for writing and coloring, a storybook, small notepads, crayons, a pen, pencils, stickers, and a note from Cooper that reads “stay strong like Cooper.” Items are needed for Cooper to continue creating his “cases”. If you would be interested in donating items to Cooper’s project, please contact Dawn at 785-787-0287.
