Community Involvement | Larry H. Miller Seeking to Give Back to CO

Larry H. Miller Dealerships operates over 60 dealership locations under 20 different automotive brands in seven western states. The dealership group is the second largest in Colorado and employs more than 1,000 individuals at 14 locations. Larry H. Miller Dealerships has a legacy of giving back to communities where it does business. Through Larry H. Miller Charities, more than $600,000 has been donated to qualified nonprofit organizations throughout Colorado since 1997.
 
Larry H. Miller Charities is a nonprofit foundation functioning as the charitable arm of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Assistance from the foundation is directed toward groups and programs based in the communities where Miller Companies run business. While we primarily focus on issues affecting women and children, emphasizing on the health and education of under privileged children. Funds are generated, in large part, through LHM companies and employee contributions, as well as donations from the general public through fundraising in the community. All contributions remain in the state where they were donated in order to help improve those communities. Since 1995, Larry H. Miller Charities has contributed to a multitude of organizations and worthy causes.
 
Larry H. Miller Charities donated  $10,000 to the Denver Santa Claus Shop. For three days in December, the Denver Santa Claus Shop set up a makeshift toy store and invites parents to come and shop for donated toys for boys and girls of all ages. The organization depends upon a large supply of toys for children. Many toys are donated by employees, and money donations to operate and our team was thrilled to be able to help out needy kids this holiday season.
The Shop served more than 13,000 children this year, and should put a smile on their faces Christmas Morning.
