ROXBURY, NJ (March 19, 2021) – Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, through its partnership with the national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, has generously donated $5,000 towards school supplies to Roxbury Township’s Lincoln/Roosevelt School in celebration of its new store now open at The Shops at Ledgewood Commons in Roxbury Township. 

A representative from AdoptAClassroom.org contacted school administrators and helped to secure the donation for Lincoln/Roosevelt. The $5,000 donation will be distributed evenly to each teaching staff member at the school to use in their classrooms. 

Building and district-level administrators were on hand this morning at the store to take part in Burlington’s official ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

4 6th Grade Students and administrators with Burlington donation check “As the Superintendent of Roxbury Public Schools and on behalf of the Board of Education and Administration, we would like to welcome Burlington to the community. Roxbury is a special place where we work to support each other and Burlington has already illustrated their commitment to the students with their generous grant of $5,000 to the Lincoln/Roosevelt School. We are certain our teachers will make good use of the funds to differentiate instruction in their classrooms and we are grateful for the partnership with Burlington,” said Loretta Radulic. 

“Our teachers are so excited to purchase the tools they need, whether teaching in the classroom or from home. We are thankful for the support we received from Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org,” shared LRS Principal Chris Argenziano. “Through this process, we learned that each time Burlington opens a new store, Burlington celebrates by adopting and funding a local elementary school in the market. Burlington is committed to supporting education through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org and we are fortunate to be the recipients of their generosity.” 

Mrs. Trimmer's 5th grade class with Burlington donation check After the ribbon cutting at the new Burlington Store, the LRS administrators, Argenziano and Assistant Principal Brian Hamer brought back the large check and shared it with their students and staff. 

Argenizano and Hamer made a special trip to Theresa Trimmer’s fifth-grade class to make the announcement. This class was selected as they have collected the most cans so far for the school’s food drive. Argenziano shared with the class, “You are caring kids who are giving back to your community through our food drive. Your class has contributed the most to the drive so far, so like Burlington Stores giving back to our school community, you are giving back as well.” 

Burlington Store is now open at The Shops at Ledgewood Commons at 461 Route 10 East in Ledgewood, NJ.
