Dottie Gerrity’s passion is literacy and her heart is with children. Through her involvement with Books for Collier Kids (formerly First Book-Collier County), Dottie helps provide children of low-income families with over 75,000 books annually. But her community involvement doesn’t stop there and she credits her experience in GNL for providing her with a “broad scope of knowledge, agency contacts and like-minded friends” who, like herself, give generously to the community and make a lasting impact.
