Lake Park ES Receives $10,000 Donation from Burlington to Celebrate Store Opening

Burlington Stores, Inc., through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, will be at Lake Park Elementary School Friday to present the school with a $10,000 check to directly fund needed supplies in each classroom.

The check presentation is part of the grand opening celebration for Burlington’s new store on Northlake Blvd. in Lake Park this weekend. Representatives from Burlington Stores, Inc. and AdoptAClassroom.org will be at the school Friday afternoon to make the donation to school principal Michelle Fleming during an assembly to surprise the students.

AdoptAClassroom.org provides teachers with an online marketplace of nearly 30 school specialty and office supply vendors where they can purchase the materials and tools they need to better engage with their students. Each teacher will have $237 to spend thanks to the donation.

“On behalf of the Lake Park Lions, I would like to thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org for adopting our entire school,” said Fleming. “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.”
