Larry H. Miller Dealerships Aims to Keep Homeless Warm This Winter With Annual “Driving for Coats”
Employees from Larry H. Miller Honda, Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, Larry H. Miller Subaru and Larry H. Miller Used Car Supermarket collected coats for the Boise Rescue Mission during their 9th Annual Driving for Coats campaign.
New and gently used coats of all sizes were collected for both adults and children to stay warm during the winter months. Boise Rescue Mission provides shelter to more than 400 homeless individuals and families each night.
This year, dealership employees and customers donated more than 500 coats to
help warm those in need this winter.
“We are giving away a lot of warm coats right now, so this gift is not only a wonderful gesture but is urgently needed,” said Rev. Bill Roscoe, president/CEO, Boise Rescue Mission.
