SONIC® strongly believes in giving back to the community and working closely with area schools and organizations. We don't consider community involvement a self-serving act, but as a way to be a good neighbor and to have a positive impact on our community.
Accent on Kids® (AOK) is the bridge that brings SONIC Drive-Ins together with these local organizations. AOK focuses on the betterment of all kids in three major areas of their lives: developing educational skills, encouraging them to get up and move, and stressing the importance of parent-child interaction.
Through AOK programs, SONIC Drive-Ins work closely with youth organizations -- such as educational groups, sports teams, and more -- to recognize and reward academic and athletic achievements. These organizations have access to complimentary SONIC goodies that can be used for fundraising efforts, achievement and appreciation recognition, and other fun outreach programs.
On behalf of your local SONIC Drive-In, thank you for the opportunity to partner with your organization. We love to contribute to the efforts of those who serve our kids and truly value having a role in childhood education, growth, and development.
"Your kindness has made a difference in the lives of these students, and that surely means more than any thanks we could ever offer. But nevertheless: thank you."
"Thank you. This is a great promo idea and [you were] very quick to respond also."

"Thanks so much for the supplies for Meadow Lane Elementary and Eastern Wayne Elementary. Riad is so helpful and cooperative! He and another employee loaded my truck in the rain, but seemed happy to do it. We really do appreciate the effort you, Riad, and the SONIC marketing office have put forth to assure my schools receive the kind donations this year!"

"Last year, we used the [community] cards to raise money for our team to go to State. It was such a good thing; we were able to pay for one night's stay for the entire team. This helped our parents out with costs and gave the boys such great memories. Thanks for your help!"

"Our school would like to personally thank you for the donation to our school library. They will certainly be beneficial in rewarding our students for their reading success! I can't thank you enough for the contribution in promoting our Accelerated Reader program, which allows my library to better serve our school kids. Thank you again."
