Burlington Coat Factory continues to set the standard for the Light The Night National Partner program. Burlington has partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as our #1 Light The Night National Partner since 2003. Since our partnership began, Burlington has raised more than $16 million for the LLS mission: Find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
In 2012 alone, Burlington raised close to $3.5 million for the effort. In addition, close to 1,000 of Burlington associates participated in Light The Night Walks across the country.
In addition to their significant financial impact on our mission, Burlington has also provided an invaluable level of awareness of our patient services and research efforts.
Burlington is a shining example of corporate engagement, from their dedicated executive leadership and store associates to their amazingly generous customers. The results speak for themselves: Burlington is our most successful National Partner, achieving fantastic milestones each and every year.
