The Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded the Des Moines Area Community College Urban Campus a $10,000 grant to support adult literacy. The grant is part of more than $7.5 million in grants awarded to nearly 900 schools, nonprofits and organizations across the 44 states in which the company operates. The grant will fund a basic English as a Second Language literacy course focused on serving adult illiterate ESL students, those who are unable to read or write in their home language. In Central Iowa, Lutheran Services in Iowa also received a grant.
