Sonic donates to local teachers
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Month, Sonic is providing teachers with necessary supplies for students to continue learning at home.
To recognize the entrepreneurial spirit driving teachers to meet their students’ distance learning needs during this difficult time, Sonic Drive-In matched all donations to DonorsChoose on Teacher Appreciation Day, giving 12 teachers in Florence a total donation of $1,577.
