Hartsville teachers receive a portion of SONIC’s donation for learning supplies

For the 12th year in a row and during an especially urgent time of need, SONIC Drive-In has donated an all-time high of $1.3 million to fund public school teacher requests across the country as part of its annual Limeades for Learning Fall Voting Campaign. In partnership with nonprofit teacher crowdfunding platform DonorsChoose and with the help of SONIC fans, they were among the community heroes up-voted to receive donations for essential materials to create an engaging learning environment in both physical and virtual classrooms. “Celebrating public school teachers through our Fall Voting Campaign feels special every year, but especially this year, as our incredible public school teachers are going the extra mile to keep their students inspired, regardless of where their classroom may be,” said Christi Woodworth, vice president for public relations for SONIC. “From cleaning supplies to humidifiers and technology needs, we were able to fulfill thousands of teachers’ wish lists for necessary teaching materials to keep their students safe and learning.” From Monday, Sept. 28, through Sunday, Oct. 25, SONIC fans voted for teacher requests that moved them at LimeadesforLearning.com, and the requests with the most votes nationwide received funding, totaling $1.3 million at the close of the campaign. In Hartsville, three teachers received a total donation of $2,865: Brandie Hewitt Berghorn at Hartsville High School for the project “One Hit at a Time Socially”; Berghorn for the project “Paddle It Out”; Berghorn for the project “Paddle It Out Part 2.” Brian Feus at Hartsville High School for the project “Socially Distant Ping Pong.” Carlisle Koonts at Hartsville High School for the project “Ping Pong PE.”
