Holmes Elementary School students and staff enjoyed a pleasant surprise at a recent school spirit assembly, where representatives of Burlington Stores, Inc. presented an oversized $10,000 check to help teachers with additional classroom supplies. AdoptAClassroom.org helped Holmes to secure and coordinate the donation.
“The kids were very surprised, and this was really a celebration of our teachers,” Holmes Principal Lori Grady said. “We’re very happy to have participated in this event.”
Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org partner to make a donation to a local school in each grand opening market to celebrate a new store location. A new Burlington store opens this Friday at Lakewood Center.
AdoptAClassroom.org is a national non-profit organization dedicated to supporting teachers and their students. The organization is recognized as one of the original crowdfunding platforms and has supported more than 175,000 teachers and 4.4 million students nationwide.
