Glanton Elementary School in Grantville recently received an $800 grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

The foundation awarded more than $145,000 in youth literacy grants to Georgia schools and nonprofit organizations. The youth literacy grants will provide financial funding to teachers, libraries and literacy organizations to support a successful academic year throughout the 44 states where Dollar General operates its stores.

Each year, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation awards funds to organizations located within a 20-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center. Grant applications for 2019 youth, summer, family and adult literacy programs will be available on Jan. 2, 2019.
