SONIC fans across the country determined distribution of $1 million to thousands of classroom projects through SONIC’s Limeades for Learning
OKLAHOMA CITY (November 8, 2019) – SONIC® Drive-In concluded its annual Limeades for Learning Fall Voting campaign in support of public school teachers last month, and Butler, Missouri teachers received funding to support their innovative and creative learning projects. In partnership with nonprofit DonorsChoose.org and with the help of SONIC fans, four teachers in Butler received a combined $1,835 for necessary supplies to inspire learning in their classrooms.
“Our Fall Voting Campaign is a special time for us to celebrate exceptional public school teachers who make a difference in communities across the country, including those in Butler,” said Christi Woodworth, vice president for public relations for SONIC. “With the help of our fans, we donated $1 million for teachers to have access to different teaching tools that otherwise wouldn’t be provided through traditional funding methods.”
Between Monday, Sept. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 27, SONIC fans voted for projects they found the most inspiring at LimeadesforLearning.com, ranging from pencils and paper to tablets and robotics kits.
In Butler, the following four exceptional teachers at two schools were among the public school teachers whose projects earned funding for much-needed teaching resources as part of the annual Fall Voting campaign:
- Adrienne Leiber at Butler Early Childhood Center for the project “New Toys for Play Centers!”
- Jacqueline Lefholz at Butler Elementary School for the project “Charge It!”
- Penny Smith at Butler Elementary School for the project “Charging into Learning”
- Rashall Wehmeyer at Butler Elementary School for the project “Charged Up!”
