This local grant is part of more than $8.6 million in grants awarded to more than 950 schools, nonprofits and organizations across the communities Dollar General serves.

"The 21st CCLC-Camp Casey program at Adair County Primary Center is delighted to receive this grant to assist us in continuing to improve the literacy of our students. 21st CCLC-Camp Casey is a before/after school and summer program provider that has been serving this community since 2004. In the past 16 years we have provided supplemental academic and enrichment opportunities to ensure the success of Adair County students and their families. During this unique time in our history, we plan to utilize these grant funds to continue that work. We will be providing books and literacy materials for our students and families this summer to use at home for remote learning." --Dana Harmon, 21st CCLC Director ACPC
