Columbia Elementary School Teachers Receive Surprise $10,000 Gift for Classroom Supplies

Posing with $10,000 checkEvery year teachers spend hundreds of dollars out-of-pocket to purchase classroom supplies to support students and their education. One retailer is stepping up to try and change that. Burlington Stores surprised teachers at Columbia Elementary School with a $10,000 donation, with every dollar going to classroom supplies. The money will be divided equally among the teachers and it must be spent on supplies and materials for the classroom. Burlington has adopted Columbia Elementary School through AdoptAClassroom.org, a national non-profit organization dedicated to supporting teachers and their students. Thank you, Burlington Stores for caring about teachers, students and education!
