Dollar General and Partners Help Stock the Classroom!
Aug 27, 2019
Dollar General teams up with Georgia-Pacific Sparkle® Paper Towels, The Kids In Need Foundation® and Tennessee Titans Player Wesley Woodyard for Operation: Stock the Classroom
More than 700 teachers and students at Glencliff Elementary attended the event that included two special guests: Tennessee Titans player Wesley Woodyard and The Sparkle® Fairy!
The event also honored one special Glencliff Elementary School teacher who played a vital role in providing students with opportunities. The honored teacher received a Dollar General gift card valued at $564 (the average amount teachers spend from their own wallets to stock their classrooms) to help ease that financial burden. School supplies for the entire year including a pallet of Georgia-Pacific paper products, custom pencil packs and Dollar General coupons for all students in attendance were also donation.
The Sparkle® item donated to the school is the custom DG Sparkle® pack that highlights the Dollar General Literacy Foundation on the packaging and is available in stores. The Dollar General Literacy Foundation received a $25,000 donation from the Sparkle® team as part of their back-to-school program.
The Kids In Need Foundation®, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and Sparkle® are also encouraging those interested in helping sponsor a teacher to visit SupplyAClassroom.org to locate and directly support classrooms that are meaningful to them. Donors can read personal statements from teachers and select to fund all or a portion of the supplies for a classroom, an entire school, or even a district or larger community.
