Dollar General donates $5M to Employee Assistance Foundation


Dollar General is making a hefty donation to its Employee Assistance Foundation.

In order to help commemorate the nonprofit’s 15th anniversary, the Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based retailer has made a $5 million donation.

“While we hope our fellow employees never experience difficult times and need support from the Employee Assistance Foundation, we are glad we can offer much-needed assistance in those instances,” Denine Torr, Dollar General’s senior director of community initiatives, said. “For 15 years, the Employee Assistance Foundation has extended hope and help to members of our Dollar General family, and this generous gift will help the foundation uplift and support more of our co-workers during difficult times.”

Founded in 2005, the Dollar General Employee Assistance Foundation looks to help provide financial assistance to employees during times of need.

Areas of support include funeral expenses after the loss of a family member and the recovery process following home damage caused by a natural disaster or fire, among other areas.
