SONIC boosts 3 Surprise teachers

Posted

In May, SONIC Drive-In donated $1.5 million to help fund local education needs through 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 brand matched 50% of each donation made to teacher requests on DonorsChoose for Teacher Appreciation Day on May 3, donating a total of $1.5 million.

With this donation, SONIC helped fully fund more than 9,000 projects from teachers across the country.

In Surprise, three teachers from three different schools received a combined donation of $673 including:

  • Erica Garcia at Arizona Charter Academy for the project The Teacher Who Dreamed for grades PreK-2.
  • Christina Ramos at Growing Minds Preschool, in the Dysart Unified School District, for the project Preschool Program Health Support and Communication for grades PreK-2.
  • Mike Zimmerman at Imagine Prep Surprise for the project The Gift of Sight for grades 6-8.
