Our Community Grant program raises vitally needed funds for local non-profit agencies serving ALICE households through their programs to reduce food insecurity, domestic violence, childhood poverty, housing insecurity, and substance use. We proudly give the gift of reading through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to all Whitman County children from birth up to 5 years old at no cost to families, thereby enhancing childhood literacy and a readiness for success in school.
