Funds will support the Job Uptake for Motivated Parents program

Representatives from Larry H. Miller (LHM) Toyota Boulder will present a check for $10,000 to the Emergency Family Assistance Association on Saturday, October 6 during the University of Colorado Boulder vs. Arizona State University football game. The grant will directly support the Job Uptake for Motivated Parents program, also known as JUMP. In conjunction with WorkForce Boulder County, this initiative provides career counseling and job-readiness training for parents living below the federal poverty line, resulting in access to higher-paying jobs. This enables families to gain financial stability and self-sufficiency, allowing for greater opportunities for themselves and their children.

“As a family-owned company, we’re proud to support this wonderful organization that’s focused on building greater opportunities for families in need,” explained Jarred Black, general manager of LHM Toyota Boulder. “Investment in the JUMP program opens the doors to employment options so families can thrive long into the future, and supports our company mission to enrich the lives of people within our community.”

Assistance from Larry H. Miller Charities, the charitable arm of the dealership group, is directed toward women and children’s programs, with an emphasis on health and education. Funds are generated, in large part, through employee contributions.
