VIERA, Fla. – Burlington Stores, Inc., through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, donated $10,000 to University Park Elementary School in celebration of its new store in Melbourne.
Representatives from Burlington Stores presented the check to Principal Ana Diaz during an assembly that took place on Nov. 3, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at the school.
A representative from AdoptAClassroom.org contacted school administrators and helped to secure the donation for University Park Elementary, which will provide $333 in new supplies for each teacher’s classroom.
According to Principal Ana Diaz, the teachers will use the funds on a number of new classroom items and supplies to support learning.
“On behalf of University Park Elementary, I would like to thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org for adopting our entire school,” said Diaz. “Our teachers look forward to using the funds to enhance learning in our school and in their classrooms. We are thankful for the support we received from Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org.”
Burlington, in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, makes a donation to a local school in each grand opening market to celebrate a new store location. The Melbourne Burlington store on Evans Road opened in October.
