Last Friday, Dollar General announced they have donated more than $2.5 million to nonprofit organizations to heal the scorned Jacksonville neighborhood where a white man killed three Black people back on Aug. 26th.



The donation includes $50,000 to local food banks, $500,000 to the First Coast Relief Fund, and $1 million to nonprofits and community organizations – they will also match donations of up to $1 million for its Employee Assistance Foundation.
