To commemorate the opening of Dollar General’s new Lafayette location, Dollar General plans to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school to benefit students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. Through the partnership with the Kellogg Company, the donation will be part of a planned donation of more than 100,000 books across the country to celebrate new DG store openings.
Furthermore, DG strives to be a good neighbor and is committed to the communities it proudly calls home, evidence by unwavering support of literacy and education initiatives through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
