Store offers literacy grants
April 30, 2020
Cathlamet was the first town in the state of Washington to get a Dollar General according to Store Manager Shawn Wood, and now she would like to see a local organization receive one of the organization’s youth literacy grants.
Schools, public libraries, and nonprofit organizations who help students struggling with reading are eligible to apply. The funding is provided to help implement new or expand existing literacy programs, purchase new technology or equipment to support literacy initiatives, or for purchasing books, materials, or software for literacy programs.
The maximum award amount is $4,000, and winners will be announced in September.
For more information and a link to the application, go to https://www.dgliteracy.org/#youth-literacy-grants
Applications are due May 21, and Wood says anyone who applies should call the store in Cathlamet and let her know.
