In recognition of the first anniversary of his death, the Super Cooper foundation is encouraging random acts of kindness.
“Super Cooper Saves The Day” is a non-profit that honors 4-year-old Cooper Busch who died from leukemia last year.
40 local kindergarten classes in our area, including 5 at Chenango Forks Elementary received gifts of bubble machines, bubble solution and popcorn, all items the little boy with Down Syndrome loved.
Teacher Ann Saroka says it’s even more poignant given that Cooper would have himself been a kindergartner in the Chenango Valley School District this year. “It was a blessing to be a part of it. We are so grateful. I believe we will always be connected with Super Cooper in this way. The kids had a wonderful time getting their gift of things that made Cooper smile.”
Each classroom also received a $20 gift card for them to do something nice for another class.
