Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, through its partnership with the national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, has donated $5,000 towards school supplies to Tucson Unified School District Grijalva Elementary School in celebration of its new Tucson store opening on Friday, February 26th at Tucson Spectrum Shopping Area, 5185 South Calle Santa Cruz, Tucson, AZ 85706. The school will receive the donation check at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. A representative from AdoptAClassroom.org contacted school administrators and helped to secure the donation for Grijalva which will provide new supplies and resources for our teachers’ classrooms.
“On behalf of the Grijalva 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 Megan Chavez, Principal. “Our teachers are so excited to purchase the tools they need, whether teaching in the classroom or from home. We are thankful for the continued partnership and support we received from Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org.”
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 the market.
