Honoring Heroes on Memorial Day

May 24, 2018


Dollar General is a longstanding supporter of the military community through initiatives including exclusive discounts to active military, veterans and their immediate family members, outreach with the military communities through its military employee resource group, founding of the Paychecks for Patriots program, which supports service members’ transition to civilian life through meaningful employment opportunities, and more.

Dollar General hires approximately five thousand veterans per year. To learn more about Dollar General’s support of the military communities, please visit the Dollar General Careers site here

Additionally in November 2017, the Coca-Cola Company formally recognized Dollar General with its President’s Veterans Recognition Award. Dollar General became the first retailer ever to be bestowed with the honor, which recognizes the company’s outstanding engagement and outreach with the military community.

As friends and family gather this Memorial Day, Dollar General joins them in recognizing our military communities and their sacrifices as they serve our country.

If you plan on participating in Memorial Day events, here are a few local and national opportunities:
 
  • Attend or walk in a Memorial Day parade
  • Place a flag on the grave of a fallen soldier
  • Reach out to a Gold Star family member
  • Donate or volunteer for an organization that supports families of fallen soldiers
  • Pause for the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. local time.
