Sabrina Williams Shops At Dollar General (Photo: Business Wire)

Dollar General has a strong commitment to schools, after-school programs and other literacy programs around the nation through its Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The foundation supports programs that help others improve their lives through literacy and education.

“It may sound simple, but Sabrina cares,” Vasos said. “She cares about her students and parents in the community, whether she knows them personally or not. She always takes the time to listen to someone who is going through a hard time and looking for support or advice. She is a pillar of strength for anyone lucky enough to know her.”

In honor of Sabrina Williams and literacy volunteers everywhere, Dollar General is making a $10,000 donation to America SCORES to help the organization fulfill its mission of inspiring urban youth to lead healthy lives, to be engaged students and to have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.
