WAWA, Pa.—Wawa announced the return of its “Cheers to Classrooms” celebration in August and September, which celebrates teachers and school administrators with a free coffee or fountain drink and a school donation.
Throughout August, all Florida teachers and school administrators will receive a free any-size hot coffee or fountain beverage. Faculty members need to simply share that they work at a school at the register to receive the offer.
For its Mid-Atlantic stores, Wawa kicks off the program in September for c-stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Additionally, through a partnership with Donor’s Choose, an online resource for teachers to submit funding requests for school supplies/support, Wawa designated a $50,000 chainwide matching fund to support schools throughout its operating area. Teachers can submit a project at www.donorschoose.org, and those schools that meet Wawa’s funding criteria could receive matching funds starting August 22.
“Wawa is excited to bring back its ‘Cheers to Classrooms’ initiative to put a smile on the faces of teachers and administration that work so hard to do the same for children in our community,” said Robert Yeatts, senior director of store operations, Wawa. “Our associates are also looking forward to visiting local schools throughout the month to welcome teachers back into the classroom and show our appreciation for everything they do!”
