The Dollar General Literacy Foundation recently awarded nearly $70,000 to Atlanta-area schools, nonprofits and literacy organizations to support adult, family and summer literacy programs. Among them was CobbWorks Inc. of Marietta, which received $8,000.

“At Dollar General, we are passionate about our mission of Serving Others throughout the communities we serve,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s chairman and CEO. “It’s exciting to see the Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s outreach in action as we partner with organizations to further education and literacy and make a real difference in people’s lives.”

Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $92 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than five million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.

The Foundation is also currently accepting applications for youth literacy grants through Thursday. Applications may be completed online at www.dgliteracy.org.
