reward teachers. In addition to sharing inspiring stories of real teachers, and encouraging others to do the same with the hashtag #ThanksTeach, SONIC’s $1-million donation was shared among more than five thousand public
school teachers across the country, with $20400 going to 102 teachers in the Tyler/Longview community, including one teacher specifically in Mount Vernon, Texas.
SONIC said #ThanksTeach to each teacher with a $200 gift card to DonorsChoose.org, SONIC’s non-profit partner for Limeades for Learning that inspires teachers to create innovative learning projects and request the materials or experiences they need most for their classrooms. Teachers can either apply the $200 SONIC donation to their own projects on DonorsChoose.org or gift the donation to another deserving teacher.
