Fort Bend ISD’s Jordan Elementary recently received a $5,000 donation from Burlington Stores through its partnership with national nonprofit AdoptAClassroom.org, which will go toward purchasing new supplies for each of the school’s teachers.

Burlington store manager April Brown presented the donation during a recent virtual meeting with school administrators.

“Our teachers are so excited to purchase the tools they need for teaching in the classroom or from home,” Jordan Elementary Principal Kimberly Charles said. We are thankful for the support we received from Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org.”

Since 1998, AdoptAClassroom.org has raised $39 million and supported 5.4 million students, according to a news release from FBISD. For more information, or to make a donation, community members can visit www.adoptaclassroom.org.
