Sonic Drive-In donates to Kingman area schools this Teacher Appreciation Month
In honor of May’s Teacher Appreciation Month, SONIC Drive-In’s SONIC Foundation donated $1.5 million to match all public contributions made to requests on DonorsChoose, a national nonprofit that allows individuals to donate directly to public school classroom requests submitted by teachers.
As part of SONIC’s ongoing Limeades for Learning initiative, the $1.5 million donation matched 50 percent of each donation made to all teacher requests. SONIC helped fully fund nearly 15,300 projects from teachers and schools across the country including six exceptional teachers in Kingman, Arizona who received a combined donation of $820.00 from SONIC.
The following are among the exceptional teachers who received funding:
* Mrs. Handyside at Cerbat Elementary School for the project “Wobble Chair While I Work on the Computer” for Grades PreK-2
* Mrs. Richmond at Cerbat Elementary School for the project “Sniffles and Snacks” for Grades 3-5
* Ms. Starkey at Cerbat Elementary School for the project “Math Tools At Hand” for Grades PreK-2
* Mrs. Suchowierski at Kingman Academy of Learning High School for the project “Easels and Flip Charts” for Grades 9-12
* Mrs. Cass at Kingman Middle School for the project “Project Clothes” for Grades 6-8
* Ms. Malmin at White Cliffs Middle School for the project “Express Yourself and Relieve Stress Through Watercolor!” for Grades 6-8
“SONIC is invested in supporting the local communities served by our more than 3,500 locations, and we’re proud of the impact we’ve made over the past 14 years through Limeades for Learning,” said Lori Abou Habib, Chief Marketing Officer of SONIC. “We’re grateful to all the SONIC guests who joined us in celebrating teachers this month by donating to a classroom request on DonorsChoose, and those who continue to help us support public education by grabbing their favorite SONIC drink and having a portion of the purchase go towards helping a nearby public school.”
