More than 40 teachers at Arlington ISD’s Burgin Elementary were surprised with a $10,000 donation from Burlington Stores during a campus-wide pep rally on Friday, Feb. 21.

This funding, part of the national retailer’s partnership with nonprofit AdoptAClassroom.org, will allow teachers to purchase classroom materials needed for their students to learn and succeed without having to spend out of their own pockets.

Burlington Stores Arlington Manager Danny Tatrow and Burgin Elementary Principal Christi Wilks presented teachers with the giant $10,000 check during the surprise announcement.

The City of Arlington applauds the companies such as Burlington Stores, who are working to make The American Dream City a kinder place to live, work, play and learn.

Mayor Jeff Williams announced the City’s Kindness Initiative in 2017. People are encouraged to report acts of kindness that they perform, witness or were the recipient of through the City's Ask Arlington mobile app, on the Acts of Kindness website, or by posting on social media using #ArlingtonKindness and @CityofArlington.
