It’s almost back-to-school season, and for Dot, that means it’s time to give back to local students.
Education has been a focus area for our charitable efforts since day one. Our co-founder Dorothy Tracy had a teaching degree and sometimes worked as a substitute teacher. We know education is key to developing safe, thriving communities.
