As shared by News 10, Dollar General is already working to establish themselves as a staple within the Latham community. The corporation is set to donate 100 new books to a nearby elementary school as part of the location's grand opening.

It's a great gesture by a store, and a company, that is looking to engrain itself within the Latham community. It's one thing to open a store, and simply exist within a city or town. It's quite another, however, to form a partnership with the local community, and this seems to be a first step toward doing just that.
