This week, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation awarded the Claiborne County Public Library a $2,000.00 grant to support the Library’s Summer Reading Program. This local grant award is part of over $7.1 million in grants awarded to more than 900 schools, nonprofits, and organizations across the 43 states that Dollar General serves.

The Claiborne County Public Library will use these funds to help pay for educational programs throughout the summer and also to purchase new children’s books.

“Consistent with our mission of Serving Others, we are excited to provide these organizations with funding to further literacy and education across the communities we call home,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO. “It is always so exciting to see the true and meaningful impact the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has on both children and adults looking to improve their lives through literacy.”

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation is proud to support initiatives that help others improve their lives through literacy and education. Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $120 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 7.3 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.

Thank you so much, Dollar General, for your support!
