Goodlettsville, Tennessee – September 8, 2022 –
Today, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation (DGLF) announced plans to award more than $3 million in grants to support more than 420,000 students attending nearly 800 schools, libraries and nonprofit organizations in the communities Dollar General calls home. These funds aim to narrow the gap between learners’ needs and programs’ financial resources by providing books, technology, equipment or materials to youth education programs.  Santa Anna ISD was awarded a $4,000 grant to purchase text to speech Reader pens, an assistive technology. A complete list of recipients can be found at www.dgliteracy.org.
The DGLF awards grants each year to literacy organizations located within a 15-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center as part of its ongoing commitment to improve individuals’ lives through literacy and education. 
Today’s youth literacy grants add to the Foundation’s $9.2 million awarded this spring to support adult, family and summer literacy programs.  Founded in 1993, to date the DGLF has awarded more than $219 million to support nearly 16.1 million individuals improve their lives through literacy and education.  The Foundation was founded by DG’s former CEO Cal Turner, Jr. in honor of his grandfather and DG co-founder, J.L. Turner, who was functionally illiterate.
