It All Adds Up – Burlington Makes a Difference
When Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, first launched their award-winning back-to-school campaign with AdoptAClassroom.org in 2017, they surprised every teacher at the Renaissance School of Arts in New York City by providing funds in each of their AdoptAClassroom.org accounts. The school’s dance teacher, Danielle, was thankful for Burlington’s donation because many of her students needed the extra support.
“The budget is not there for public schools to purchase all of the supplies needed for every classroom,” said Danielle. “AdoptAClassroom.org and Burlington’s support has re-energized our teachers, who now teach with more passion. And the supplies make it possible to continue to educate the students that call our school their second home.”
In 2018, second grade California teacher Shereen received funding from Burlington Stores. She is convinced that the donation Burlington gave to her classroom will help her students for years to come.
“I was so surprised and touched by Burlington’s generous donation to me and to my classroom of amazing students,” said Shereen. “When I clicked on the email from AdoptAClassroom.org and saw the very large gift Burlington had given me, I just broke down and cried.”
We are so thankful for Burlington’s continued commitment to improving the lives of teachers and students in their communities across the country. This year, we look forward to helping even more classrooms and supporting even more teachers and students through this meaningful partnership.
