Altoona teacher receives donation from Sonic

OKLAHOMA CITY — To honor the creative efforts teachers have made to maneuver their ever-shifting 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.

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

Mrs. Rosenberry at Juniata Gap Elementary School, Altoona, received a combined donation of $176 for the project “Headphones Make Happy Learners”
