Hometown Elementary will receive a $2,200 Grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to support youth literacy.

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation recently awarded Hometown Elementary School a $2,200.00 grant to support youth literacy.

 

This grant is awarded annually at the beginning of the academic school year inception; youth literacy grants help supports teachers, schools and nonprofit organizations throughout the 44 states that Dollar General serves. 

 

Hometown Elementary will use the grant funds to purchase “Learning Alive” to help students develop and improve reading skills through computer software materials that spring to life in 3-D augmented reality technology.  Additionally, our ‘Building A Bond with Books’ project will include the purchase of books to share with families during activities such as “Books Take the Cake,” “Book & Pajama-Rama,” and “We’re Bubbly About Books.”  Hometown Elementary is thrilled to partner with the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to provide students and their families with this incredible opportunity.

 

“The Dollar General Literacy Foundation is proud to be an ardent supporter of schools, libraries and nonprofit literacy organizations,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s chief executive officer. “Dollar General’s mission is Serving Others, and this commitment comes to life through Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants that will impact thousands of students across the country.
