The Dollar General Literacy Foundation recently announced plans to help make a difference during the upcoming academic year with the award of nearly $100,000 in literacy grants in Alabama.
Educators at 35 schools, libraries and nonprofit organizations across Alabama communities will receive additional resources to support new and ongoing youth literacy programs. Odenville Intermediate School was the recipient of $2,500.
“This year, many teachers, libraries and literacy organizations are facing new challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s chief executive officer and Dollar General Literacy Foundation board member.
“Despite the unprecedented obstacles, we admire the tremendous efforts and commitments from educators as they work to provide students with the tools they need to develop their literacy skills. We hope these funds will help support their plans to advance learning and deliver quality instruction in our hometown communities.”
