This past May, SONIC®
Drive-In recognized incredible teachers and the contributions they
make to education as a part of its Limeades for
Learning initiative in partnership with nonprofit partner, DonorChoose.org. With the goal of helping
teachers obtain much-needed classroom supplies and learning resources, SONIC
launched a donation match in honor of Teacher Appreciation Month and gave two
teachers in Hinesville $629.
In total, SONIC donated $1.2 million matching donations made to SONIC Teacher projects in May. As a result, SONIC rewarded two entrepreneurial teacher lead projects at two schools in the Hinesville community, including: Joy Mccook at Bradwell Institute for the project "Bringing Art into our Interactive Science Notebooks" and Tommy Oglesby at Taylors Creek Elementary School for the project "Save The Trees and Write On The Table."
SONIC provides essential funds needed for learning materials and innovative techniques for teachers to inspire creativity and learning through Limeades for Learning, the brand's national award-winning cause marketing campaign. Since 2009, SONIC has donated $13.1 million, supported 33,177 classrooms, and provided necessary learning materials and teaching resources requested by teachers to impact 995,310 students in partnership with DonorChoose.org.
While Teacher Appreciation Month is celebrated in May, SONIC supports teachers year-round.
