Dollar General’s South Boston distribution center presented $10,000 to the Church of God Food Bank as part of the company’s mission of serving others.

The contribution is among a total of $430,000 in donations made last week to local nonprofits and schools through Dollar General’s “Thankful For You” recognition event.

“Continuing our ‘Thankful For You’ festivities into the New Year, we are excited to show our appreciation to local organizations in the communities we call home,” said Denine Torr, Dollar General’s vice president of corporate philanthropy. “We hope these donations not only help get their year off to a positive start, but also bring our mission of serving others to life in our hometowns, demonstrating our commitment to being a good neighbor.”

Dollar General’s “Thankful For You” event, held in December, also included the company’s recognition of its 164,000-plus employees for their role in fulfilling the company’s mission through a weeklong celebration filled with engaging activities and rewards.
