Ore City, TX (Grassroots Newswire) November 20, 2012 - With Thanksgiving

only a few days away SONIC Drive-In is giving thanks for public school

teachers through donated supplies and classroom experiences. Several Ore

City-area teachers are directly benefitting and have received funding for

program.

The program recently completed its fourth annual voting campaign in

partnership with DonorsChoose.org that allows the public to vote online

for the classroom projects they want to see funded by SONIC. SONIC funded

$600,000 worth of those most-voted-for projects on a weekly basis between

September 24 and October 29.



"SONIC's commitment to education is inspired and directed by the very

communities our drive-ins are a part of," said James O'Reilly, chief

marketing officer for SONIC. "It's those folks, the SONIC customers and

Limeades for Learning voters who visited the site and voted in record

numbers, who we'd like to congratulate and thank for another successful

year of Limeades for Learning."



The Ore City teacher projects are just a few of the more than 1,490

nationwide that received funding this year as a result of being a

top-voted project on LimeadesforLearning.com. Projects include calls for

much-needed supplies that inspire learning and deal with subjects like the

arts, science, reading and physical education. SONIC and its franchisee

partners have donated more than $2.7 million and funded more than 5,500

projects for teachers across the country through Limeades for Learning

since 2009.
