Community Involvement Options

Our Community Mindset

 Your local SONIC Drive-In operators don't consider community involvement a sales gimmick or a public relations ploy. They see it as a way to be a good neighbor, and as a way to have a positive impact on their community. Their efforts will include awards to encourage young kids to read and incentives to keep older kids in school. They will also provide opportunities for fundraisers for school projects or other means of assistance for events in your community.

Please feel free to contact the marketing manager of your local SONIC Drive-In to find out what programs we are supporting. While budget limitations make it impossible to support every worthy cause, your local SONIC is interested in learning about the work of your organization. Local drive-ins have many fundraising activities available to fit most any organization. Please contact the marketing manager of your local SONIC for information. (770-337-5510) or email to:
