Burlington Stores Inc., through its partnership with Adoptaclassroom.org, donated $10,000.00 to United ISD’s George Washington Middle School (G.W.M.S.). The funds will be used to purchase additional school supplies. Diana Chavez, manager of the Burlington store located at 2302 N.E. Bob Bullock Loop, was accompanied by her associates for the surprise announcement in the school gymnasium. Students, teachers and United ISD administrators cheered alongside the Mighty Bobcat Band, cheerleaders, and dancers when the contribution was revealed. Principal Beth Porter accepted the check on behalf of her campus. “All of us at George Washington Middle School wish to thank the Burlington Company and AdoptAClassroom.org for their generosity. This is a wonderful surprise - we appreciate Burlington’s support for our students", Porter said. Burlington Stores Inc. made a comparable donation to United ISD’s San Isidro Elementary School in 2018.
