“As we continue to celebrate teachers this Teacher Appreciation Month, we sincerely thank educators like Amy Brown, 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.”
