Dollar General Awards Scholarship at Morton
November 26, 2008 - Dollar General has awarded Morton Memorial Schools in Knightstown, Ind., a $1,500 Youth Literacy Grant. The Dollar General Youth Literacy Grant provides funding to schools, public libraries and nonprofit organizations for the implementation or expansion of literacy programs.
“Learning to read is a critical building block for a solid education and a brighter future,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s CEO. “Dollar General is committed to supporting the schools and organizations that are helping children master this important skill. We commend Morton Memorial Schools for its efforts in helping children further their education through reading.”
Morton Memorial Schools is one of 249 organizations to receive this grant from Dollar General in 2008. Dollar General awarded 100 Youth Literacy Grants in spring 2008 and 149 in fall 2008.
Since its founding, Dollar General has been committed to supporting literacy and education. To further this support, the company founded the Dollar General Literacy Foundation in 1993. To learn more about Dollar General’s literacy initiatives and available grants, visit www.dollargeneral.com.
