S'mores that Support Literacy!

Enjoy a tasty dessert and support literacy and education, all at the same time, by using Dollar General Literacy Foundation chocolate and shortbread cookies that are available in more than 13,000 retail locations across the country.  Not only do they taste amazing and cost only $1 each, but all proceeds benefit the DGLF, which awards grants each year to organizations, schools and nonprofits aimed at improving lives through summer, adult, family and youth literacy initiatives.
 
Dollar General’s commitment to literacy and education is rooted through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and the company’s co-founder, J.L. Turner.  Turner had a third-grade education and was functionally illiterate after dropping out of school to support his family.  His grandson and former CEO, Cal Turner, Jr., founded the Dollar General Literacy Foundation in 1993.  Since its inception 23 years ago, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $127 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 7.9 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
