Support the Burleson Center for Innovation & Education

The Burleson Boutique

The Special Education Department will be re-launching its thrift store at the Burleson Center for Innovation and Education. The thrift store is a department wide initiative, in which students in self-contained classrooms earn money and take monthly community based instruction trips to purchase goods with the money earned.


The thrift store is asking for donations of gently used or new:


  • toys
  • costumes
  • puzzles
  • books
  • coloring books
  • art supplies
  • jewelry
  • purses
  • household goods
  • clothing
  • shoes

Sensory Garden

We are also in the process of building a sensory garden which will serve as an extension to the learning environment. The sensory garden will be accessible to students in our 18+ program and students who visit the Burleson Center on a regular basis for their community based instruction.


We are in need of the following items for the sensory garden:


  • bags of soil
  • lavender
  • jasmine plants
  • succulents
  • tomato plants
  • sage
  • rosemary
  • bamboo
  • large dominos
  • large jenga blocks
  • small terra cotta pots
  • metal funnels
  • Any other plants or seeds which will be interesting to touch, smell, sight, taste, sound

Donations can be dropped off at The Burleson Center for Innovation and Education or call 444-8103 to arrange pick up

We are located at 534 Cordelia St, 2nd bldg

Remember every donation will earn you a jean pass to be used on any day of your choice.
