GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. — Niagara County Community College is the recipient of a $4,000 grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, the company announced Thursday.

In all, Dollar General awarded $10,000 to area schools, nonprofits and literacy organizations to enhance and support youth literacy and education programs. These grant awards are part of more than $4 million in grants awarded today to approximately 870 schools, nonprofits and organizations throughout the 43 states Dollar General serves.

Aside from NCCC, $4,000 also went local to Literacy Empowerment Action Plan of Western New York in Tonawanda and another $2,000 went to Seneca Street Community Development Corporation in Buffalo.

“At Dollar General, our mission is Serving Others, and we are committed to making a difference in people’s lives through the support of literacy initiatives and educational programs in the communities we call home,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO.  “These grants fill a critical need in our communities by providing a timely funding boost at the beginning of the school year for the enhancement of literacy programs.”

These youth literacy grants are awarded at the beginning of the academic year in an effort to give teachers, schools and organizations a great start with the funding and resources they need for the upcoming school year. A complete list of grant recipients may be found online at Grant applications for adult, family, summer and youth literacy grants will be available in January 2016.
