SAN ANGELO, TX — San Angelo ISD announced that Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, donated $5,000 toward school supplies to its Fannin Elementary School teachers. The donation, as part of Burlington’s partnership with the national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, is in celebration of their new store now open in San Angelo at 4328 Sunset Drive.
AdoptAClassroom.org, through the donation from Burlington, will provide the funds meant for new supplies for each Fannin teacher’s classroom.
“On behalf of San Angelo ISD and Fannin 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 Fannin Elementary School Principal Cathy Humble.
“In this unique year which has presented trials for all of us in our school and community, we are so touched by this thoughtful gift. Your generosity will benefit each one of our students personally. I know our teachers will be so excited to be able to make a meaningful difference for their students because of this gift. We are thankful for the support we received from Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org.”
Principal Humble and other San Angelo ISD staff members joined the local Burlington team, including Store Manager Alex Vega, at the grand opening ribbon-cutting event on Friday, March 19, 2021 to celebrate the store opening in San Angelo.
“Burlington’s San Angelo store is proud to help our teachers and students in our community get the educational resources they need to succeed. Burlington is proud to support and promote education in all of our store communities nationwide,” said Store Manager Vega. “Our San Angelo store is proud to be a part of our community’s education, and we are honored to donate to Fannin Elementary School. Congratulations, and go Fannin!”
San Angelo ISD appreciates Burlington’s commitment to supporting public education, the partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, and the support to our Fannin teachers and their students and classrooms. It is a tradition for Burlington to celebrate the opening of a new store by adopting and supporting a local elementary school in the market, which San Angelo ISD finds commendable.
The new Burlington store is now open at 4328 Sunset Drive and per Burlington, provides ‘wow- deals’ for the entire family and home.
The San Angelo ISD indicated that it worked with Burlington to select what school would receive the gift.
