The Dollar General Literacy Foundation announced Oct. 31 it awarded a $10,000 adult literacy grant to the Greenville Literacy Association.
The funds will be used to support GLA’s educational opportunities and support services for individuals, including those with learning, physical, emotional and mental disabilities.
“We are grateful to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation for their investment in the work we do every day,” said Victoria Novak, executive director of the Greenville Literacy Association. “This funding will support more than 500 adults with level-appropriate instruction in basic literacy and numeracy, GED preparation, learning English as a second language, digital literacy, and workplace and career-ready skills.”
Since 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has helped millions of students learn English and how to read as well as prepare for the high school equivalency test by funding nonprofits, schools and libraries within a 15-mile radius of Dollar General stores.
