Deep Springs receives $5,000 from Burlington through AdoptAClassroom.org

Principal Adam Kirk thanks store manager Justin Lundgren and Burlington for the generous donation.Burlington Stores, a national off-price retailer, through its partnership with the nonprofit AdoptAClassroom.org, has donated $5,000 for Deep Springs Elementary in celebration of a new location opening in Hamburg. Store manager Justin Lundgren presented Principal Adam Kirk and Elementary Schools Chief Tiffany Marshall a ceremonial check during the Oct. 29 ribbon-cutting event at 1937 Star Shoot Parkway. The Deep Springs staff will be able to shop some two dozen vendors in an online marketplace for a range of classroom supplies and educational materials.

“It’s an incredible honor whenever I can showcase and celebrate my amazing teachers. We are so grateful that the good folks at Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org recognize and value the work they do each and every day,” Kirk said. “This $5,000 donation will go directly to my teachers so that they may purchase classroom items that will supplement their high-quality instruction. At the end of the day, our kids will benefit as they continue their journey toward academic proficiency. It’s a great day to be a Deep Springs Dragon!” 

Burlington is committed to supporting education through its connection with AdoptAClassroom.org. Every time a new Burlington store opens, the company funds an elementary school in the local market. The FCPS Family & Community Engagement Office selected Deep Springs, a Title I school, based on students’ needs. Last fall, Tates Creek Elementary was the recipient when the Burlington opened in the South Park Shopping Center at Nicholasville and New Circle roads.
