Burlington's Corporate Social Responsibility

At Burlington, we believe that the way we do business is just as important as the results we achieve. That philosophy guides the decisions we make across all our stores, distribution centers and corporate locations. It also keeps us focused on identifying ways we can add value for our shareholders, associates, vendors, customers and the environment. We are, therefore, very excited to present our Corporate Social Responsibility report, which illustrates Burlington’s approach to managing the environmental, social and governance issues (ESG) that are important to us and our stakeholders.

Community Relations

 

Burlington Coat Drive

Burlington and the national non-profit organization Delivering Good, join together to keep neighbors warm through the Burlington Coat Drive. Each year during the holiday season, Burlington customers, associates, and vendors donate new and gently worn coats at their local Burlington store locations across the country. Through Delivering Good, coats are distributed locally to those most in need within each store community. To date, the coat drive has collected more than 2.3 million coats! Thanks to all those who continue to donate and help spread the gift of warmth.

Burlington Toy Drive

While Burlington locations stateside are collecting warm coats during the holiday season, its store locations in Puerto Rico are collecting new toys to benefit Fundacion Infantil Ronald McDonald, a local non-profit organization which creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families living in Puerto Rico. Since the Toy Drive commenced in 2013, more than 50,000 toys have been collected and donated.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night

Burlington is proud to be the #1 National Corporate Partner and Honored Friend of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Over the 18 years, Burlington has raised nearly $43 million for blood cancer research and life-saving treatments. Each year, young cancer survivors and their families are surprised and honored by Burlington and LLS at their local store with a shopping spree. Each Fall, customers generously support the cause by donating at any Burlington location. In addition, Burlington associates nationwide participate in Light the Night events within communities across the country.

AdoptAClassroom.org – Helping to fund classroom materials to support teachers and their students

For the past 3 years, Burlington has proudly partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org during the back-to-school season. AdoptAClassroom.org provides funding to teachers so that they can purchase the classroom materials they need for students to learn and succeed. Since 96% of American public school teachers reported paying for school supplies out of their own pocket, spending over $745 of their own money each year, Burlington wanted to help off-set this burden and support teachers across the country. Over the last 3 years, Burlington has collected over $5.5 million during our Point-of-Sale campaigns. Donations to AdoptAClassroom.org benefit teachers and students in Burlington store communities nationwide, with nearly 36,000 classrooms being adopted over the last 3 years.

Natural Disaster Relief Efforts

When unfortunate natural disasters occur, Burlington responds. Whether it’s international or domestic, Burlington finds a way to help. Over the past several years, the world has seen devastating hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, and tsunamis. As a result, Burlington and its customers have donated funds and new merchandise to non-profit organizations including The American Red Cross, The Salvation Army and Delivering Good, assisting those most in need.

Charitable Donation Policy

Burlington works exclusively with Delivering Good to make merchandise donations to charitable non-profit 501 c3 organizations. Burlington does not make monetary grants/donations, donate gift cards nor provide merchandise for philanthropic fashion shows, auctions, raffles, or any other fundraising activities.
