One reason I love shopping at Dollar General is because they give so much back to programs that help others in need. One such program that I am so excited they support is literacy. I know as a lover of books and a children’s librarian that it only takes one book to open the floodgates of learning and discovering a whole new world through words. The Dollar General Literacy Foundation can help put people in touch with local agencies that can help them learn to read, get their GED diploma, and learn English.
This February, Dollar General and Procter & Gamble are honoring everyday heroes who make sacrifices for their families and make a difference in their communities. One such hero is Sabrina in Chicago.
Sabrina is a driving force in the community of North Lawndale, on the west side of Chicago. In addition to raising her own four children in the neighborhood she grew up in, she also became a valued community leader and volunteer. She was the Chair of the Parent Committee at her children’s elementary school and continued to work with a national after-school literacy organization, America SCORES, as a writing coach for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade boys, even after all of her own children went on to high school.
We are so fortunate to have those like Sabrina who give of their time to make a big impact on those who need it most. You can learn more about this wonderful program Dollar General supports by visiting this page.
