GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. – In recognition of Gainesville’s "strong community support" to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation last year, Sugar Hill Elementary and New Holland Academy will each receive $5,000 in donations to further support their literacy efforts.

Check presentations will be made at the Dollar General store at 2208 Lenox Drive Thursday at 10:00.

“Dollar General is proud to support these local literacy initiatives that will have a strong and direct impact on the Gainesville community,” said Denine Torr, Dollar General’s director of community initiatives.

Every day, customers support the mission work of the Dollar General Literacy Foundation by donating their spare change in donation containers located near the cash registers at each Dollar General.

In addition, customers interested in learning how to read, speak English or get their General Education Diploma (GED) can pick up a brochure at Dollar General cash registers with a postage-paid reply card that can be mailed in for a referral to a local organization that offers free literacy services.
