    Dollar General Turns Its Focus to Schools as “Every Day Heroes”

    Throughout September, Dollar General will celebrate schools and honor teachers during its year-long “Every Day Heroes” campaign.

    In celebration of schools everywhere, Dollar General will offer customers the opportunity to win money for their school through the Dollar General “Write to Win” promotion. Customers ages 21 and over may visit dollargeneral.com to submit a brief essay about why their school deserves to win. Three essays will be selected and the winning schools mentioned in those essays will win $10,000 each.

    In partnership with Procter & Gamble® (P&G), Dollar General is honoring schools across the country and is proud to be featuring AAMA-Sanchez Charter School in Houston. One of the school’s teachers, Melanie Flores, will represent the school on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network in September as part of the “Every Day Heroes” campaign.
