Teachers, Administrators and students at Frances Slocum Elementary in Marion have received an early Christmas present from Dollar General...a check for forty-thousand dollars.
Marion Distribution Center Director Victor Wilson says the money will be used by Frances Slocum for their library and literacy programs. Wilson says Dollar General strongly believes in such programs for kids.
Frances Slocum Principal Anne Liddick said she was overwhelmed by the gift from Dollar General, and said the school will not only expand their library with new books but she also hopes the gift will help provide more books for each individual classroom.
