It has been a whole year since I first blogged about Dollar General's Every Day Heroes, and I'm so happy to see that this program is still going strong. Everyday heroes make such a big difference in our communities, yet their acts of kindness and courage usually go unsung -- which makes programs like Dollar General's Every Day Heroes all the more important!
This month, in celebration of diversity and coinciding with Black History Month, Dollar General has teamed up once again with Procter & Gamble to honor Every Day Heroes who make sacrifices for their families and make a difference in their communities. Dollar General has chosen Sabrina Williams as its Every Day Hero for February 2013.
Here's a bit more about Sabrina:
Sabrina is a driving force in the community of North Lawndale, on the west side of Chicago. In addition to raising her own four children in the neighbor she grew up in, she also became a valued community leader and volunteer. She was the Chair of the Parent Committee at her children's elementary school and continued to work with a national after-school literacy organization, America SCORES, as a writing coach for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade boys, even after all of her own children went on to high school.
Sabrina will be featured in a national television program airing on TNT called "Dramatic Differences". You can find out more about Sabrina and about Dollar General's commitment to literacy at Dollar General's website. Congratulations Sabrina, and thank you for all that you do to make a difference!
