It’s no secret that public school teachers are spending hundreds of their own dollars to buy supplies they need for their classrooms. It’s expensive to have a classroom, and buy supplies for it. When I was teaching, I got $50 A YEAR to spend on classroom supplies. That wasn’t even enough to cover my dry erase marker budget.
Thanks to this partnership with SONIC, I’m sharing more about their Limeades for Learning and Donor’s Choose initiative.
SONIC saw this need and created Limeades for Learning as a way to help offset some of the teachers costs by providing funding for the supplies and resources they need.
SONIC is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Month through its Limeades for Learning philanthropic initiative
The program is successful with the help of DonorsChoose.org, an organization dedicated to making it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. To date, SONIC has donated more than $11.7 million to public school teachers, funding more than 26,509 classroom projects and supporting more than 795,270 students.
SONIC Drive-In’s annual Limeades for Learning campaign, a philanthropic initiative that donates $3 million per year in support of public school teachers all over the country.
Starting Wednesday, May 8,SONIC is launching a $1 million donation match with DonorsChoose.org to help public school teachers get the essential supplies they need to inspire their students. You can learn more on the Limeades for Learning blog and donate. Then, SONIC will match their donations dollar for dollar!
Recognizing public school teachers needed more support, SONIC Drive-In partnered with DonorsChoose.org ten years ago. Limeades for Learning® is a national award-winning initiative to support U.S. public school teachers in local communities.
I was excited to ask friends for their classroom projects and teachers to make a donation. Sonic sent me a $200 Donor’s Choose gift card which I immediately put to good use at our own local elementary as well as several others in the area.
