It’s Valentine’s week, and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation would like to thank you for all of the amazing work you do to help advance literacy. Often times, teachers and tutors work tireless hours serving others while wearing multiple hats and juggling a million tasks. We want you to know that we appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. Thank you for making a difference.
 
We also wanted to share this video with you as a reminder of why we love literacy programs. If you love this story as much as we do, please feel free to share it with your friends, and join us in thanking Kleenex for shining a light on literacy.
