Wawa is toasting to teachers with free coffee and fountain beverages with the return of its Cheers to Classrooms celebration to its convenience stores in Florida.

Through the month of August, teachers and school administration in Florida can get any size hot coffee or fountain beverage free. Faculty need to share that they work at a school at the register to receive the offer.

“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 at 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!”

Additionally, through a partnership with Donor’s Choose, an online resource for teachers to submit funding requests for school supplies and support, Wawa has designated a $25,000 chainwide matching fund to support schools throughout its operating area. Teachers can submit a project at the Donor’s Choose website and schools that meet Wawa’s funding criteria could receive matching funds. The initiative will run in Wawa’s Mid-Atlantic operating area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Deleware, Virginia and Washington, D.C., in September.

Based in Wawa, Pennsylvania, Wawa has 1,000 c-stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C.
