Dollar General Donates $1,000 to Laramie County School District 2
Funding recognizes a local employee’s community engagement and reflection of Company’s mission of Serving Others
Goodlettsville, Tenn - Dollar General recently donated $1,000 to Laramie County School District 2 on behalf of a local employee at store #20856 in Pine Bluffs as part of the Company’s DG Kindness campaign.
Each and every day, Dollar General operates through its mission of Serving Others, and the DG Kindness campaign highlights and recognizes a local employee’s positive impact in their community while providing funds to support employees’ ongoing efforts.
Store manager Sherry Boryczko in Pine Bluffs recently provided a local family with the supplies and essentials they needed when facing financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic. After overhearing a family in her community attempting to pool enough money to buy a half gallon of milk while shopping in her Dollar General store, Boryczko immediately stepped in to help. In the true spirit of Serving Others, Boryczko provided the family with a $50 shopping spree for basic supplies and essentials out of her own pocket.
“Our team members are part of the fabric of the communities we call home,” said Denine Torr, Dollar General’s senior director of community initiatives. “Whether they are providing excellent customer service to Dollar General shoppers or going the extra mile to support a cause or organization they believe in, we want to celebrate and honor their commitment to Serving Others. The DG Kindness campaign gives employees the opportunity to provide funding to a deserving organization in their hometown, and it gives Dollar General the chance to recognize the important ways our employees are serving our communities.”
According to Dollar General assistant store manager Belina Stevenson, helping others is an ordinary occurrence for Boryczco.
“She is always going out of her way to help her customers and the families in her community,” Stevenson said. “Sherry has a heart of gold. She is a good teacher, a good leader and just an all-around good person.”
Because of Boryczco’s act of DG Kindness, Dollar General provided a $1,000 donation to Laramie County School District 2 Free Youth Curbside Meals Program, which will continue to help even more families in Pine Bluffs.
