Dollar General : Partners with Arbor Day Foundation

05/06/2021 | 06:31am EDT

Company Donates $100,000 Toward Reforestation and Tree Replanting; Efforts Highlight Company’s Mission of Service

Dollar General (NYSE: DG) today announced a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation to extend the Company’s community and environmental stewardship efforts. In addition to a $100,000 donation, which will support planting more than 20,000 trees through reforestation and community tree planting events in multiple states, Dollar General also plans to support the partnership through employee volunteer days in various markets across the country.

“We look forward to partnering in the Arbor Day Foundation’s significant efforts to plant trees that will benefit communities for generations to come,” shared Denine Torr, Dollar General’s vice president of corporate social responsibility and philanthropy. “At Dollar General, we are proud to be good community partners and support positive changes in the communities where we serve, work and live.”

The Company’s $100,000 donation will support Arbor Day Foundation’s reforestation projects in Florida, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio with 5,000 trees allocated to each state. The trees provided through Dollar General’s partnership seek to aid areas that have experienced natural and man-made deforestation and to provide vital habitat for endangered wildlife, healthier watersheds and cleaner waterways, as well as increased carbon sequestration to slow the rate of climate change and more sustainable ecosystems.

Additionally, this fall Dollar General plans to lead community tree planting projects in Nashville, Tennessee; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Albuquerque, New Mexico and Durham, North Carolina to provide local Dollar General employees with the opportunity to create green spaces in their hometowns.

Dollar General’s commitment to its mission of Serving Others also is reflected in its recycling efforts. Through the Company’s cardboard backhauling initiative, which began in 2008, an equivalent of nearly 35 million trees have been saved with more than two million tons of recycled cardboard.
