Burlington Stores, Inc., through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, has donated $10,000 to Northeast School in celebration of its new store in Evergreen Park.
The funds will be distributed among staff members for the purchase of supplies for their classrooms. Burlington surprised staff and students with the donation during an April 20 assembly.
According to Principal Jacquelyn Janicke, the teachers will use the funds on a number of new items.
“On behalf of District 124, I would like to thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org for adopting our entire school,” Janicke said. “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 Burlington store will open at 9550 South Western Avenue, Evergreen Park, on April 27.
