In August, the SONIC Foundation donated $1 million to help fund classroom supply requests on DonorsChoose, a national nonprofit that allows individuals to donate directly to public school classroom requests submitted by teachers.

The $1 million donation is part of the SONIC Drive-In brand's ongoing Limeades for Learning initiative.

In Ormond Beach, Yanelisi Brugone at Tomoka Elementary School received a donation of $108 for the project "Increase Access to Literature in 4th Grade Classroom" for third to fifth grade. At Beachside Elementary, Kelsi Quicksall-Jones also received funding for the project "Capturing Creativity in the Art Room" for third to fifth grade. She was one of two teachers in Daytona to receive a combined total of $397 in donations, according to a news release. The second teacher to receive funding in Daytona was Amelia Haller at Longstreet Elementary, for the project "Building Critical Thinkers and Future Scientists!" for pre-K to second grade.

"SONIC's dedication to supporting education through our Limeades for Learning program is a core pillar of our business and the transition into a new school year is a crucial window in setting students and teachers up for success," said Kim Lewis, vice president of brand experience for SONIC.
