Literacy changes lives, and for more than 30 years, it’s been our mission to ensure that our neighbors have access to meaningful education and transformative skills. With more than $238 million donated to fund literacy programs to date, and partnerships with schools, nonprofits, libraries, and more, we’re working everyday to provide communities with the tools they need to write their own stories.
At Dollar General, we believe every family should have access to affordable, nutritious foods. It’s why we offer nourishing foods in all of our convenient locations, why we work with a certified dietician and nutritionist to on our “Better For You” program to highlight healthier options in stores and useful recipe tools online, and why we’ve partnered with Feeding America to provide more than $2 million and 16.8 million pounds of food for families in need since 2021.
When disaster strikes, we're there to help our neighbors and our communities. By partnering with the American Red Cross, and local community organizations, we support the critical first responses and the long-term recoveries that help hometowns heal and provide hope for the future.

Sustaining our communities happens from the ground up. And that’s why we’re so committed to being good environmental stewards and creating sustainable change that helps our neighbors thrive. From partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation on large-scale reforestation efforts to hosting local planting projects for our employees and their communities, we strive to maintain the vibrance of every place we call home.
