LUBBOCK, Texas -

Small people have big voices in the town of Earth and corporations are paying attention.

Students at Springlake-Earth sent more than 75 letters to Dollar General in hope to get a store. The company will now open its 1,500th store in Earth. The school district also received a $50,000 donation to the elementary campus.

"It was amazing to have so many beautiful heartfelt letters from students, and really to be able to empower them and say, 'you know what, when you raise your voice, when you let your, your wants and desires be heard, sometime, they get to cone true," Denine Torr, Senior Director of Community Initiatives, said.

Torr said Dollar General is an advocate for literacy and are happy to contribute. Dollar General has provided more than $2.9 million dollars to schools since 2013.
