The Dollar General Literacy Foundation is celebrating its 25th anniversary by giving out local grants.
Kosciusko Literacy Services received $12,000 of the $8.3 million the organization awarded across the country this year.
The funding will be used to support the One-on-One Tutoring for Adults Program that works in conjunction with Warsaw Adult Education. It provides tutors for adult students who need additional help to learn to read, to earn a High School Equivalency Diploma, or to learn English as a new language.
Since its inception in 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $154 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, helping more than 10 million individuals take their first steps toward literacy or continued education.
