TUCSON, Ariz. (December 9, 2021) – For the eighth year, employees of Larry H. Miller Dealerships will spread joy and holiday cheer to Tucson and Phoenix residents through the dealership group’s annual “10 Days of Giving” campaign. Over the course of the holiday campaign, employees will present $236,700 in donations, to 21 charities across Arizona, $42,000 of which will support nonprofits in Tucson.

 

This year’s Tucson donations will support charities that provide pajamas and books for abandoned and abused children, hunger relief for kids, free arts for children who are experiencing cancer and other serious illnesses, affordable housing, support and empowerment for young girls experiencing hardship, essential services for youth who have no familial support, and more.

 

“Altruistic at heart, our employees find fulfillment in giving back to their communities, especially during the holiday season,” said Pat Kroneberger, senior vice president, Larry H. Miller Dealerships. “Many of us have personal connections to the work these 21 charities are doing in our community and are grateful for the programs, services, and overall support they provide to those in need. It’s truly an honor to give our support through these donations, so we can help these organizations continue their mission.”

 

Larry H. Miller Charities disperses charitable donations through a grant program primarily focused on charities that serve women and children, with an emphasis on health and education.

The grant will provide financial assistance to these students via monthly stipends, bill assistance, basic needs items, transportation assistance, and more. The donation will help 46 Tucson students receive the stability and support they need.

Nearly 2,500 children receive Beads of Courage throughout the year, and with the donation, 1,500 kids will be directly impacted.
