Burlington Stores, Inc., through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, is donating $10,000 to Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ Jack D. Gordon Elementary School in celebration of its new store in Miami.
Representatives from Burlington Stores will present the check to Jack D. Gordon Elementary School Principal Maileen A. Ferrer during an assembly that will take place on October 17, 2017, at 9:00 am at the school.
A representative from AdoptAClassroom.org contacted school district administrators and helped to secure the donation for Jack D. Gordon Elementary School which will provide money for new supplies for each teacher’s classroom.
“On behalf of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, I would like to thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org for adopting our entire school,” said Maileen Ferrer. “Our teachers look forward to using the funds to enhance learning in our school and in their classrooms.”
