The Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded a $3,000 grant to YMCA Community Literacy Council in Washington. The grant will be used to fund literacy and basic education programs for adults.
“The Dollar General Literacy Foundation proudly supports YMCA Community Literacy Council’s efforts to improve education for adults,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s chairman and CEO. “Their focus on helping adults reach their educational goals is creating brighter futures for many families.”
The Dollar General Literacy Foundation awards grants to organizations in communities where its customers, employees and their families live and work. The adult literacy grants support nonprofit organizations that provide adult literacy services such as basic education, GED education preparation or English as a second language.
