OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the new school year gets underway, SONIC® Drive-In is thanking educators with a weeklong freebie event. From August 21 through August 25, an offer will be sent each day to any teacher, faculty or staff at a K-12 school or degree-granting university enrolled in the SONIC Teachers’ Circle program, available through the SONIC App.*

“Educators give their all each day as they shape and inspire the minds of our kids. Providing teachers and faculty with a week of special SONIC rewards is our small way of saying thanks as they start a new school year,” said Kim Lewis, Vice President of Brand Experience for SONIC.
In addition to providing exclusive rewards to educators through Teachers’ Circle, SONIC supports public schools throughout the year by donating a portion of proceeds from every drink, slush and shake purchase to the SONIC Foundation, which is used to support local public education.*** Since 2009, the SONIC Limeades for Learning initiative has raised more than $27 million for funding local classrooms, becoming one of the largest programs in the U.S. to support public education.
