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 two Carter County teachers a total donation of $433.
Through Limeades for Learning®, SONIC donated $1 million to public school teacher requests across the country on Teacher Appreciation Day — Tuesday, May 5, 2020 —supporting their endeavors to provide students with essential education resources.
Two teachers at Central Elementary School in Carter County were among those whose projects received funding. They were Curry Jaynes for the project “Read Together While Safe At Home,” and Kimberly Jacobs for the project “Distance Learning Lessons With Punch.”
“Teachers across the country face new and complex challenges to keep their students learning right now,” said Christi Woodworth, vice president for public relations for SONIC. “As we continue to celebrate teachers this Teacher Appreciation Month, we sincerely thank educators like those in Carter County, who are creatively keeping their students learning even as schools are closed. With SONIC’s $1 million donation match, we were able to help teachers obtain resources for their students and will continue to empower them throughout the year.”
