South Pittsburgh area teachers receive Sonic DonorsChoose program grants
June 7, 2022
This month, SONIC® Drive-In donated $1.5 million to help fund local education needs through DonorsChoose, a national nonprofit that allows individuals to donate directly to public school classroom requests submitted by teachers.
As part of SONIC’s ongoing Limeades for Learning initiative, the brand matched 50 percent of each donation made to teacher requests on DonorsChoose for Teacher Appreciation Day on May 3, donating a total of $1.5 million. With this donation, SONIC helped fully fund more than 9,000 projects from teachers across the country.
In South Pittsburgh, among the exceptional teachers who received funding was Courtney Mcnary at Pittsburgh Arlington PreK-8 School for the project Hearing the Future for Grades 3-5 and Kristen Kassep at Pittsburgh Brashear High School for the project Promoting Reading...One Book at a Time for Grades 9-12.
