During the December 6, 2016 Florida Cabinet meeting, Governor Rick Scott and Volunteer Florida CEO Chester Spellman awarded the Volunteer Champion of Service Award to Guardian ad Litem volunteer Dorothy Binger.
The Champion of Service Award is Florida’s only statewide volunteer recognition. The award recognizes a volunteer who demonstrates excellence in volunteerism and community service.
“Ms. Dot” has served as a Guardian ad Litem Volunteer in the Second Circuit for over 27 years and has been the voice for more than 60 children of all ages. She works more than 20 hours a week for the GAL Program – providing a voice for children involved in Florida’s dependency system. She embodies the dedicated, passionate, caring, smart, generous, hardworking spirit of GAL volunteers across the state. Thank you for being a voice for Florida’s most vulnerable children.
