Glen Burnie, MD — Teachers at Glen Burnie Park Elementary School received a surprise $10,000 donation from Burlington Stores, Inc.
The gift was in celebration of a new store location at Centre at Glen Burnie.
The donation was made through Burlington’s partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org,
Representatives from Burlington Stores surprised the school’s teaching staff at an assembly before the school’s 515 students. The donation will be used to aid the school’s teachers in purchasing supplies and materials for each of their classrooms.
“Our teachers sacrifice so much often using their own funds to make sure that their classrooms are well-equipped to support students,” said Park Principal Sandra Blondell. “This donation will not only go a long way in support of our students, but it shows how much our community values our teachers. We are so appreciative of this generous gesture.”
Burlington, in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, makes a donation to a local school in each Grand Opening market to celebrate a new store location. In addition to Park ES, Ferndale Early Education Center was also awarded a $1,000 donation as part of the same initiative.
The new Burlington store at Centre at Glen Burnie opened last week.
