CAMDEN, N.J. (WPVI) --A New Jersey teenager is proving that every penny counts.
The Action Cam was at Cooper University Hospital in Camden Friday as Melvin Sheppard dropped off his annual donation for the neonatal intensive care unit.
The 18 year old started the tradition of collecting pennies when he was 11.
He says it's a token of thanks for the medical care he received in 1997, as a premature newborn at Cooper.
So far, Sheppard has donated more than two thousand dollars.
