A dollar may not stretch very far, but $21,500 can go a long way.
That’s how much Dollar General awarded Des Moines Schools, nonprofits and literacy organizations to support adult, family and summer literacy programs Friday.
Recipients include Drake University, Lutheran Services, and the Willkie House.
“It’s exciting to see the Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s outreach in action as we partner with organizations to further education and literacy and make a real difference in people’s lives,” says Dollar General CEO Rick Dreiling.
Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $92 million in grants to nonprofit organizations.
