To honor the creative efforts teachers have made to maneuver their learning environments and keep students engaged this past year, Sonic Drive-In donated $1.5 million to teacher requests on national education nonprofit site DonorsChoose on Teacher Appreciation Day, May 4.

As part of Sonic's ongoing “Limeades for Learning” initiative, the $1.5 million donation helped fund more than 7,000 teacher requests across the country in need of critical resources, including Mrs. O'Brien, a teacher at Crosslake Community School, who received a combined donation of $1,021.

On Teacher Appreciation Day, the brand matched 50% of each donation made to all teacher requests on DonorsChoose.
