As ‘Welcome to the Neighborhood!’ gifts go, Burlington Stores created a great first impression, in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org. Burlington officials recently surprised Juarez-Lincoln Elementary staff members with a $5,000 donation towards school supplies through AdoptAClassroom.org.

A new Burlington store opened at 760 Dennery Road, just minutes from the school. Store officials announced the donation to the school via a video conferencing call as part of a staff meeting with Principal Robert Pollack. The donation will provide new supplies for each teacher’s classroom.

“On behalf of Juarez-Lincoln, I would like to welcome our new local Burlington store and thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org for their generous donation to our school,” Mr. Pollack said. “Our teachers are so excited to purchase the supplies they need, whether teaching in the classroom or from home. We are thankful for the support we received from Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org.”

Burlington is committed to supporting education through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org. Each time Burlington opens a new store, Burlington celebrates by adopting and funding a local elementary school in the market.
