Purina and Dollar General have started a partnership that focuses on increasing the awareness of the importance of literacy. This partnership allows you to not only save money but you can also give back through your purchases.
During April, shoppers can “Do More With Their Dollar” and not only save on Purina pet products but help improve kids reading skills & self-confidence. Purina is partnering with the Dollar General to help achieve the goal of growing awareness of the importance of literacy. Studies have shown that when children read to pets, their reading skills & confidence improve (on website we are developing we will speak out this study & other ways pets can help kids learn). Therefore Purina will make four Dollar General digital coupons available & for each one redeemed from 4/5/2015 through 4/30/2015, Purina will donate $1 to the Dollar General Literacy foundation up to $20,000.
The Dollar General Literacy Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations and schools that help individuals learn to read, prepare for the high school equivalency test, or learn the English language. The contributions from the promotion will be used towards these grants.
Use the 4 digital coupons available and redeem them to trigger the donation in stores:
◦ Save $1.00 on one (1) 12lb bag of Purina® Friskies® Dry Cat Food
◦ Buy ANY five (5) 5.5oz cans of Purina® Friskies® Wet Cat Food and get one (1) can FREE (up to 50¢)
◦ Save $1.00 on one (1) 14lb or larger bag of Purina® Alpo® Dry Dog Food
◦ Save $1.00 on ANY one (1) package of Purina® Tidy Cats® Scoopable Litter
The dates of the donation initiative are April 5th to April 30th.
