Burlington Stores, through its partnership with the national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, has donated $5,000 towards school supplies to Lynchburg City Schools’ Heritage Elementary School (HES) in celebration of its new store now open in Lynchburg at 475 Simons Run.
A representative from AdoptAClassroom.org contacted school administrators and helped to secure the donation for HES, which will provide $5,000 in new supplies for each teacher’s classroom.
According to Principal Sharon Anderson, the teachers will use the funds to purchase items for their classrooms and to support students in their area of needs including reading, math, science, and social studies.
“Heritage Elementary School faculty and staff are very excited to receive this donation of $5,000,” said Principal Anderson.
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 elementary school in their store community.
