Freezin for a Reason
Freezin for a Reason is our annual camp out to bring in canned food for the Ferris food drive. Our six ASB officers camp out in the freezing cold at the entrance of the Ferris parking lot and collect donations of canned food from our local community. We would really appreciate some coverage so that we can get the word out to our community so that we can reach our goal of 5,000 cans!

Cooper Staff gives to "Toys for Tots" in a unique way
The Cooper Staff have come up with a special way to honor each other this holiday season, as well as make a sizeable donation to our local Toys for Tots. Similar to a "Secret Santa" gift exchange, each person draws a staff member name out of a hat. Then, that person buys a children's gift that reminds him/her of that person. On Thursday, December 12th, staff will exchange their gifts and discover how they "inspired" the purchase of the child's toy. Last year, for example, Rona Williams, principal at Cooper - and avid golfer - received a set of plastic golf clubs perfect for a toddler. Once all of the gifts are opened, the entire lot of toys is hauled away and donated to Spokane's Toys for Tots organization. It is one small way that the Cooper staff can give back to this great community.
