Burlington Stores, a major off-price retailer offering brands for the entire family and home, through its partnership with the national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, has donated $5,000 towards school supplies to Gresham-Barlow School District’s Hollydale Elementary School in celebration of its new store now open in Gresham at 719 NW 12th Street, Gresham, OR, 97030.
A representative from AdoptAClassroom.org contacted school administrators and helped to secure the donation for Hollydale Elementary School, which will provide $192 in new supplies for each teacher’s classroom.
According to Hollydale Principal Jessica Ramirez, teachers can use the funds in a variety of ways to include funding a learning project or purchasing additional titles for their classroom libraries.
“On behalf of the Hollydale Elementary, I would like to welcome our new local Burlington store and thank them and AdoptAClassroom.org for their generous donation to our school,” said Principal Ramirez. “Our teachers are so excited to use the funds to supplement their classroom tools and resources."
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 school in their store community. The new Burlington store is now open at 719 NW 12th Street, Gresham, OR, 97030.
