The 17th Annual ‘Stuff for Students’ Supply Drive Returns to Larry H. Miller Fiat Denver

Summer is wrapping up, and we are gearing up for fall with the 17th annual ‘Stuff for Students’ donation drive! Once again, our Larry H. Miller Fiat Denver dealership is teaming up with other local Larry H. Miller dealerships, Denver’s 9NEWS, and the Volunteers of America (VOA) Colorado Branch to deliver school supply donations to students in more than 15 Colorado school districts.

 

We are seeking your help again this year to donate as many school supplies and monetary support as possible to local students. Last year, we were able to raise over $23,500 in supplies and monetary donations—making it our best ‘Stuff for Students’ supply drive yet! Those supplies and that support reached more than 60,000 Colorado students. This year, we hope to reach even more.

 

“One of the greatest investments we can make as a company is in our youth,” said Ray Reilly, senior vice president of operations, Larry H. Miller Dealerships. “By participating in ‘Stuff for Students,’ we’ve been able to ensure that local students have the tools they need to succeed in school. Our incredible customers and employees have helped us collect nearly $50,000 in school supplies over the last four years, and we look forward to a successful 2018.”

 

Even though drives like these exist, Colorado teachers spend about $656 out of pocket each year on student supplies, according to the Colorado Education Association. Additionally, more than 23 percent of students who live in counties supported by the VOA are currently living in poverty. This number is almost 10 percent higher in our local region than it is across the entire state of Colorado. Your donations can help nearly 25,000 students statewide.

 

“The teacher walkouts seen around the country this year highlight how dramatically underfunded public schools can be. A lack of resources means children living in poverty could fall behind in class,” said Bradley Gulley, director of volunteer services, Volunteers of America Colorado. “The donated school supplies from Larry H. Miller dealerships and their customers make a real difference in helping children be successful in the classroom.”

 

For this entire month, our dealership will be receiving supply donations, hopefully filling one of our showroom vehicles to the very top with school supplies for local students. We will then redistribute the supplies to more than 15 school districts across the state. Supplies can include backpacks, pencils, highlighters, scissors, binders, rulers, calculators, erasers, glue, lunch bags, and anything else that students ranging from pre-k to high school level may need in the classroom. Additionally, you may donate directly to the VOA online at http://www.voacolorado.org/news_and_events/stuff-for-students. Together, we can offer support for local students across the state. We can provide the supplies they need for a successful education. 
 

Larry H. Miller FIAT Denver is Colorado's #1 FIAT volume dealer. We're also proud to provide drivers with a wide range of used vehicles that both look and drive like new.
