Employees Raise $790 for Burt Family

On Friday, January 15, Burlington Labs employees raised $790 for the family of 22-year-old Brittany Burt of Barre, Vermont, who died in a home arson in Northfield in December, shortly before Christmas.

Employee donations assisted Brittany's family with financial burdens resulting from Brittany’s untimely death.

Brittany’s boyfriend, also a victim of the blaze, is currently in Boston receiving treatment for extensive burns. 

While this story is certainly one of the more tragic causes we've raised money for in our "Dress Down Day" Employee Giving Campaign, we hope our contributions ease some of the stress for Brittany's family at this incredibly difficult time.
