Officials from Sonic surprised teachers at Tyler Heights Elementary School last week with a $2,000 donation for various programs at the school.
With help from Cherry Limeade, the restaurant's mascot, they presented a check to the school as part of Limeades for Learning, a program in partnership with DonorsChoose.org.
According to a release, Tyler Heights teachers submitted more than $2,000 in projects to be funded by the program.
The programs that will be funded through the donation include:
- Matthew Schlegel’s Build a Passion for Reading—Project for exciting and motivating children's books to promote literacy and fluency and build a strong passion for read.
- Paula Borinsky’s You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for More Books!—Project for 25 books to feed students’ enthusiasm for reading.
- Nicole Sutton’s Let’s get ORGANIZED!—Project for organizer carts, bins, etc. that will allow the classroom materials to be easily accessible to kid.
Sonic has donated more than $2 million to public school classrooms across the country through Limeades for Learning since its debut in 2009, according to a release. For more information on Limeades for Learning, visit LimeadesForLearning.com.
