San Angelo, Texas (March 19)- San Angelo ISD is happy to announce Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, donated $5,000 toward school supplies to our Fannin Elementary School teachers. The donation, as part of Burlington’s partnership with the national non-profit organization, AdoptAClassroom.org, is in celebration of their new store now open in San Angelo at 4328 Sunset Drive.
AdoptAClassroom.org, Burlington, and San Angelo ISD worked together to coordinate the
generous donation by Burlington to Fannin Elementary School, which will provide new
supplies for each Fannin teacher’s classroom. “On behalf of San Angelo ISD and Fannin Elementary, I would like to welcome our new local Burlington store and thank them and AdoptAClassroom.org for their generous donation to our school,” said Fannin Elementary School Principal Cathy Humble. “In this unique year which has presented trials for all of us in our school and community, we are so touched by this thoughtful gift. Your generosity will benefit each one of our students personally. I know our teachers will be so excited to be able to make a meaningful difference for their students
because of this gift. We are thankful for the support we received from Burlington and
Principal Humble and other San Angelo ISD staff members joined the local Burlington team,
including Store Manager Alex Vega, at the grand opening ribbon-cutting event on Friday,
March 19, 2021 to celebrate the store opening in San Angelo.
“Burlington’s San Angelo store is proud to help our teachers and students in our community
get the educational resources they need to succeed. Burlington is proud to support an
promote education in all of our store communities nationwide,” said Store Manager Vega.

partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, and the support to our Fannin teachers and their
students and classrooms. It is a tradition for Burlington to celebrate the opening of a new
