The Rosewood Dollar General team including Miss Stella, Mister John, Laurie, Brandon, and Gidget spent last Saturday collecting several bags of school supplies from customers to help Cedar Key teachers as part of the annual Levy County Schools Foundations fundraiser.
They also collected the left over change from people’s purchases. The change, combined with other cash donations, added up to $120. The money will be given to teachers as $5 and $25 gift cards.
Some customers gave big, like Wendy from D&W Bait House in Cedar Key. She gave $20 to the cause as she checked out at the register.
“I have a kid in school and I don’t want to see anyone go with out,” she said.
Dollar General also served free chips and candy throughout the day to its customers in appreciation for the community support shown to CKS, as well as soft drinks and bottled water that were donated by “Conrad the Coke Man.”
