Stuff For Students Fundraiser 2017

The time has come for the 16th annual “Stuff for Students” school supply drive—woohoo! Larry H. Miller Denver Fiat is teaming up with Larry H. Miller Dealerships, Denver’s

9NEWS, and the Volunteers of America (VOA) Colorado Branch to support local students.

We’ll be collecting donations throughout the month of August and distributing them to more than 15 Colorado school districts to benefit students from pre-k through high school.

 

“We want Colorado students to start the school year off right and with the tools necessary for them to succeed,” said Ray Reilly, senior vice president of operations at Larry H. Miller Dealerships. “Giving back in the communities where we do business has always been a guiding principle of Larry H. Miller Dealerships, and we’re excited to continue our support of the ‘Stuff for Students’ campaign for a third year.”

 

Throughout August, our team along with our customers, will stuff a vehicle in our showroom with supplies, including backpacks, pencil boxes, highlighters, scissors, binders, book covers, calculators, lunch bags, and more. We’re also happy to accept monetary donations made online through the VOA http://www.voacolorado.org/news_and_events/stuff-for-students

Unfortunately, families frequently have to compensate for higher priced school supplies, and we want to do what we can to lessen that burden. Nowadays, parents can easily spend up to $900 on one high school student alone. Currently, 23 percent of the 743,255 students in the counties served by the VOA are living in poverty, higher than the state average of 14.7 percent. Additionally, Colorado school districts identified nearly 25,000 students statewide who were experiencing homelessness. Your donations will go towards helping these kids.

“There’s still a concerning number of children living in poverty in Colorado and school funding is not sufficient enough to help with other needs like school supplies,” said Bradley Gulley, director of volunteer programs at Volunteers of America Colorado Branch. “Thanks to donations from Larry H. Miller dealerships and their customers, we will be able to provide more students with the school supplies they need to be successful in the classroom. These contributions will make a real difference in the communities we serve.”

 

Since 2015, our team and customers have donated more than $26,000 in school supplies. With your help, we’re looking forward to increasing that number this year and helping improve the lives of our local Colorado students.
