Established in 2000

News that a fellow employee has lost his or her home because of a flood, tornado or other natural disaster is something met with great sympathy. Thousands of Dollar General employees are spread across 35 states, and while many have neighbors, family and friends to offer support, others may be overwhelmed with the financial burden. To lend a helping hand, Cal Turner Sr. established the Turner Family Disaster Relief Fund, which offers one-time financial assistance to Dollar General employees recovering from a recent natural disaster.
