Sock it to ‘Em

When Lily Cuticchia showed up to Cooper University Hospital, she wasn’t carrying what you might expect as typical patients gifts go, like flowers or a teddy bear. Instead, she was carrying socks. 1,200 pairs.

When her mom started working in Cooper’s addiction medicine department last fall, the Haddonfield second-grader wanted to do something to help. She learned that patients were in need of socks, so she set out to collect them by posting signs in front of her house and having her mom call for donations on social media.

“I know there are a lot of sick people,” Lily says. “So I wanted to help them too.”
