Teachers at Dexter Elementary School got quite a surprise. Burlington Stores, through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, donated $10,000 to Dexter teachers for them to use in their classrooms.
“We are so extremely excited and thrilled
the EVSC Foundation worked to secure this donation for our school
,” said DeKarla Owens, Dexter principal. “We can’t thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org enough for this generous donation and I know all of our teachers are so excited to use these funds to further enhance learning in our classrooms.”
Burlington, in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, makes a donation to a local school each time a new store is opened. In this case, this donation celebrates the opening of the new Burlington location in the East Lloyd Shopping Center next to PetSmart.
