Dollar General is stepping up once again during the COVID-19 crisis to offer a 10% discount to first responders, National Guardsmen, and medical workers.

Dollar General’s CEO, Todd Vasos, said in an official press release,  “At Dollar General, we are deeply appreciative for the ongoing and brave work that our medical professionals, first responder communities and National Guard activated continue to perform during these unprecedented times. To demonstrate our heartfelt gratitude for these individuals’ tireless service to their communities, we are proud to help support them with this discount.  On behalf of the entire Dollar General family, we would like to thank all of the physicians, nurses, pharmacists, paramedics, police officers, fire fighters, Guardsmen and other health care and front-line professionals working to support and care for our neighbors and communities.”

I know we'll eventually come out of all this, but until then it's nice to know that there are places helping in ways that only they can. Well done Dollar General!
