What an amazing event that the COOP foundation puts on. I have been involved charity and donation work for over 30 years and these fantastic people do it right! It was wonderful to see how hard they work and how much the families they sponsored received for the holidays. Without them they would have probably got nothing. They did everything and more to make this day one that they will never forget. It was wonderful to see so many happy recipients and all the volunteers were helpful and loving. Santa was great, the food was outstanding, the music added to the general atmosphere and the multiple activities were for all ages. I was amazed at the amount of careful giving - and it just kept happening throughout the event. If you can donate or volunteer to this organization you will not only truly help families in need, but you will join the best organization I have had the pleasure of being involved in in a really long time. I look forward to working with them for many years and cannot say thank you enough times to them for what they do.

We have been coming to see Dr Cooper for nearly 4 months now and the progress my wife is making is astonishing and nothing short of a miracle. She had scoliosis at a young age and had her upper back fused. Twenty years later she was suffering lower back pain from the pressure of the rods pressing down. After numerous painful and expensive "procedures" like steroid injections and burning of the nerves there was no real fix for her problems. We met Coop through a friend, not ever thinking that chiropractic was an option with her rods in her back. Boy were we wrong, my wife would come home from work and go straight to bed in a lot of pain... now after her adjustments and guidance from Coop she can function with nearly no pain at all. We sit in the lobby, waiting our turn, watching miracles performed on a daily basis!! I would HIGHLY recommend looking up his page on Facebook cooperstown chiro and see the miracles for yourself. We also attended the Christmas drive this year for the first time. One word.. HUMBLING!! A life changing event that I was proud to volunteer at. Thanks to Coop and all the staff for all you do!! To see the love of my life have a chance at a painless life is amazing! !

I first became involved in the foundation when my mom was diagnosed with Lupus in 2006. She became a part of the foundation and they were helping with her medical needs. Her doctors had her on several medication which had many side effects and she was always in some type of pain. Now in 2013 she is still a patient, she does not take any medication but takes supplements daily. She also suffers from arthritis, but with her weekly adjustment she rarely has pain. She is living a normal life, working and doing activities with me and our family.

I also volunteer with their Christmas drive every year and it has been a life changing experience. every year they get donations from businesses, people, patients and they use every cent to buy gifts for families who are in need and cannot afford their own. They receive their presents from Santa on an even day and I've been blessed to be involved in the whole process. The COOP foundation has touched so many lives with the work that they do and I look forward to volunteering at their event this Saturday.

I've helped support the Christmas event the C.O.O.P. Foundation puts on for the last five years in various ways by sponsoring families and shopping for items on the families' wish lists. It is a wonderful event that thoroughly blesses families in the community every year. I have so appreciated Dr. Cooper's commitment to bring hope and healing to all his clients and to provide care to those that cannot afford it. He definitely has a heart to give back to the community and to serve those around him with the gifts and talents God has blessed him with.

This December will be my 5th year volunteering at the COOP Foundation's Annual Family Drive at Christmas. It is hard to put into words how this event impacts the lives of hundreds of people each year. Gratitude, love and smiles abound by both recipients and volunteers alike. In a world where the less fortunate can be left feeling lost, forgotten and alone, they are shown a completely different picture of humanity through this event. My husband, children and I will continue to volunteer for this organization for as long as possible.

I started going to Dr. Cooper back in 2004. My family and I started volunteering for the Christmas Drive in 2008. We purchased items for families in need whether it be new shoes or some work clothes and even something fun for the kids. My family loves to participate in shopping and wrapping and of course giving the gifts to the less fortunate. It truly shows my kids how blessed they are and how to help others and be less selfish. Cooperstown really does everything they can to help those in need especially during the holidays. They are provided with a meal, a Christmas Tree and gifts for the family that they really need. Dr. Cooper has made it possible by being generous and caring to all he meets. We don't always have the financial means to donate money for the families but we donate our time to help out no matter what it may be. This organization has done a great job and they continue to get better year after year.

One year in this group I helped deliver Christmas to needy families, amongst other projects. In my experience I was reminded of the blessing at Christmas and the blessing in my own life. It was the best Christmas gift I could give and illuminated the saying it’s better to give then receive.
Another year I donated a working color 27” Television to be given to someone without a TV. I have done all sorts of volunteering for this organization from setup, welcoming guests, to serving food, supervising helpers, it was worth every minute.

Throughout my 4 years of helping out with the C.O.O.P. foundation I've had nothing but great experiences. this foundation is definitely one that i am proud to say that i volunteer for. there have been many projects over the years, but the most recent one was a car wash. There was nothing but smiles as we washed all these cars. it was a pretty busy day, but it was a fun day to say the least. Dr. Cooper is definitely a wonderful guy and he runs a great organization. The C.O.O.P. foundation get two thumbs up for me and i think they're great!

Dr. Cooper's care and compassion not only is observed with his clients, but to his community. My husband and I have been able to participate in two annual Christmas events that is sponsored by the C.O.O.P. Foundation. Through donations and fundraising efforts the foundation is able to provide holiday cheer to disadvantaged families who otherwise would not have a Christmas to speak of. I was thrilled to see smiles on children's faces after receiving their gifts from Santa Claus. The foundation also provides assistance to those who cannot afford Dr. Cooper's program. My husband and I feel very proud to be a part of Dr. Cooper's Cooperstown and his generous foundation.

I have provided live music for the C.O.O.P. Foundations Holiday Event off and on for many years now. I am always touched by what I see. Even from a distance, I can feel the excitement and anxieties of the families who wait for their turn to visit with Santa. They seem reluctant to believe that goodness and giving are sincere. There are tears of joy, not only from those receiving gifts that include basic needs such as clothes and small appliances, but also from the volunteers who have worked tirelessly to accomplish the massive task of tracking down the special requests and gifts, those who spent hours and hours wrapping, the folks who fill plates of food, the runners, the supervisors, and even the musicians. One year I watched as a three year old clung to Santa's leg as he tried to walk inside for a well deserved break! The child had not been invited but had seen the event while walking by with her Grandmother. She tried all morning to get to Santa. She had been carried off the stage numerous times, redirected to make music with me, and fed. Panicked that Santa was leaving the scene, she adhered herself to him. Her determination was admirable. Santa reached down and gathered her up. She whispered in his ear and asked for a bike.She hugged Santa with the biggest hug imaginable and did not want to ever let go! A volunteer watching this, drove to a near-by store and purchased a new bike. There was not a dry eye as she finally earned a trip to Santa's lap and the "elves" presented a shiny new bike! I will always cherish this memory; it is Christmas for me.
