Local Boys & Girls Clubs among area recipients of Dollar General grants

By AccessWDUN Staff

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake Lanier are among the area recipients that will share in more than $100,000 in grants from the Dollar General Foundation.

The Foundation says the grants are for "youth literacy initiatives."

“Each fall, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation proudly provides financial support to schools, libraries and nonprofit literacy organizations that help students and teachers as they head back to the classroom,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s chief executive officer and Dollar General Literacy Foundation board member. “Whether it is providing books and technology or enhancing reading programs, today’s grants will help students reach their full potential through targeted literacy initiatives that impact the communities Dollar General serves.”

The grants are part of more than $2.8 million that the Dollar General Literacy Foundation awarded last week. Recipients plan to use the funds to help students learn to read, prepare for the high school equivalency exam or learn English.  

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake Lanier are getting $3,000 from the Foundation.

Other area agencies receiving grants are in Forsyth, Gilmer, Gwinnett, Hart, and Pickens counties.
