SONIC’s 2020 Fall Voting Campaign is Back!

Reporters are welcome to use Inspire Stories material. If you have any questions, please contact us at

This year has presented its fair share of challenges, creating uncertainty for public school teachers and their students. As teachers continue to show off their superhero prowess and adjust to both distance learning and in-person teaching techniques, they need our support now more than ever.

Today through Sunday, October 25, SONIC is asking YOU to decide how to distribute $1 million to teachers’ requests for supplies and materials made via DonorsChoose on The requests with the most votes nationwide receive funding! The maximum funding per project is $600.

You can vote for teachers’ requests and make their wish-list a reality through the following ways:

  1. Sign up with a valid email address and receive one automatic vote daily at
  2. Visit your nearby Sonic Drive-In to receive a bag sticker code worth two votes
  3. Vote 10 times and receive an email of three bonus votes to be used on the website

For an added incentive, guests who enter the promo code TEACHERS can treat themselves to a free large drink or Slush, with any purchase made in the Sonic App, available for download in the Apple App Store or Google Play store, September 28-October 5, 2020.*

Learn more about the creative ways teachers are acclimating to this unprecedented school year, as well as the type of lessons they are incorporating into their curriculums and cast your vote here. Share your support with friends and family on social, and be sure to check back in to see if your favorite request generated the most votes!
