Medford, Ore. - The new Burlignton store in Medford just opened its doors to customers this week and it's already doing it's part to give back. On Friday, they donated $5,000 to Oak Grove Elementary School.
The non-profit "AdoptAClassroom.org" and Burlington partner every year to give money to schools across the county. Burlington employees, Oak Grove faculty, and community members gathered Friday morning to celebrate the donation and talk about teachers would put this money to use for their students. Their plans include a new diverse library set and potentially a new garden.
Helping give back to local communities is part of Burlignton's identity as a company and the faculty at Oak Grove are very grateful for the generous donation.
