Help Support Teachers With SONIC’s Limeades for Learning

I received product/compensation in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

Did you know that every year public school teachers spend $1 billion total of their own dollars to buy supplies for their classrooms? From new scissors to pencils to organizers, teachers everywhere do what they need to for their students. Kids shouldn’t have to experience a lack of resources that could benefit them! This year marks the 10th year for SONIC Drive-In’s annual Limeades for Learning campaign, a national award-winning initiative to support U.S. public school teachers in local communities.

For the next few months, SONIC will be donating money to teacher projects posted on the Limeades for Learning website so teachers from Portland, Maine to Portland Oregon can get the school supplies and materials they need for their classrooms. The initiative is successful thanks to the help of DonorsChoose.org, which is an organization dedicated to making it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Teachers just log onto DonorsChoose.org and launch a campaign for something they need such as new chairs for students or tech for the classroom and people can donate to the campaign.To date, SONIC has funded more than 17,000 classroom projects and supported more than 536,850 students!

I have donated personally to DonorsChoose.org a few times now and it really is a great feeling knowing I am helping out a classroom and getting to see what my donation will be used for. You can search for projects by topics, teachers or schools near you or anywhere.

Some of current Limeades for Learning projects available are:

An EV3 Kit to Teach Programming

  

A project to fund Butterfly Larvae Cultures to watch the larvae turn into butterflies.

A project to purchase 3 economics games and 18 economics books to increase financial literacy

Are you a teacher who could use some funding?

Don’t miss the opportunity to create a project to benefit your classroom and students. Then the community votes for the public school teacher’s projects during the fall voting campaign. It is obviously better to get the projects launched the sooner the better to have a better chance at getting their project funded.

Everyone can benefit from Limeades for Learning

Teachers have nothing to lose by creating a project and the community has nothing to loose by voting for them and/or donating themselves if they can. I have always been a fan of SONIC Drive-In and love them, even more, knowing that they have partnered to help teachers. SONIC’s Limeades for Learning is an initiative that is benefiting students across the country and kids are our future!

Help support teachers the way SONIC does!

With the help and support of everyone, by 2021 SONIC’s total contribution to local public school classrooms will exceed $20 million.
