Dollar General and Procter & Gamble honor teachers who make a difference + GIVEAWAY!



I love these posts where I can you, my readers, great information about companies doing something for the community. Once again, Dollar General is teaming with Procter & Gamble® to honor our nation’s schools and teachers who make a difference in the lives of children through its Every Day Heroes program . The Every Day Heroes campaign honors educators who teach students to be their best by offering great savings on school supplies and other products for the heroes closest to our hearts.

Dollar General also has a strong commitment to education through the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and believes learning to read, earning a GED or learning the English language are investments that opens doorways for personal, professional and economic growth. I love that!


All through the month of September, Dollar General is recognizing Kimberly Shearer, an English teacher and library science teacher at Boone County High School in Florence, Ky., as its Every Day Hero. As an eight-year veteran of Boone County High School, her commitment to educating our youth and advocating for 21st century literary skills through the use of technology helped earn her the title of “Kentucky Teacher of the Year.”When she is not busy helping her students succeed, Kimberly is spending time with her husband and two daughters.

Congrats to Kimberly for her achievement and for being such a great teacher! Education is something that we all should support! And we need to thank those people who take the time to become teachers!

Check out the September P&G brandSAVER® found in local newspapers on Sunday, September 1 for some great deals on P&G products! I know I always grab a brandSAVER from my paper because I love deals! Plus, if you shop at Dollar General, you get even better deals on P&G products!

And in honor of our Every Day Heroes, Dollar General and P&G have a great prize pack for one of my lucky readers. The prize pack includes:
