The Association of Ohio Commodores Foundation (AOC Foundation) recently awarded a grant of $26,900 to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Ohio to help provide free books to young children in the state.

Established at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio in August 2019, the AOC Foundation Fund supports the charitable, educational and public purposes of the Association of Ohio Commodores, with an emphasis on projects that encourage and advance economic growth by strengthening Ohio’s workforce.

“Research shows that literacy is one of the single greatest predictors of an individual’s success in life,” said David Johnson, grand commodore. “We’re proud to provide this funding to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library of Ohio to help ensure that the youngest Ohioans have access to books that will instill a love of reading and strengthen their futures.”
