Larry H. Miller Dealerships Donates $7,000 to Fund Hygiene Kits for Homeless Students September 7

2000 × 1600Employees of Larry H. Miller Dealerships’ four Boise locations presented a donation to United Way of Treasure Valley’s Basic Needs Hygiene Kits for Homeless Students project on September 7. These kits provide a one-month supply of basic hygiene items, such as toothpaste, deodorant, soap, laundry detergent and feminine hygiene items to homeless students.

“In Boise alone, nearly 900 students are homeless and do not have a safe, permanent place to sleep or supplies to bathe or stay clean. In spite of this, these students are fighting to stay in school, graduate and succeed,” said Nora Carpenter, president and CEO, United Way of Treasure Valley. “We work with school district social workers and homeless student liaisons to help keep these vulnerable kids in school by providing them with basic hygiene kits. To date, more than 4,500 kits have been distributed thanks to volunteers and donations from organizations like Larry H. Miller Dealerships.”

Funding is via Larry H. Miller Charities, the charitable arm of the dealership group, which is made up largely of employee contributions.
