Community Outreach

Community Involvement


Formed in 1995, Larry H. Miller Charities (LHM Charities) is a nonprofit foundation that functions as the charitable arm of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Assistance from the foundation is directed toward groups and programs based in the communities where Miller companies conduct business. Attention purposely focuses on issues that affect women and children, with an emphasis on health and education. Funding for LHM Charities enables the foundation to continue making an impact. Funds are generated, in large part, through LHM companies and employee contributions, as well as donations from the general public through fundraisers in the community. These contributions remain in the state where they were donated to benefit the local community. Since its inception, Larry H. Miller Charities has assisted a multitude of organizations and worthy causes.
Stuff For Students

August means that it is time to go back to school for millions of children across the country. Our goal at Larry H. Miller is to send every child back to school with the materials they need to succeed. We are raising money and gathering supplies for families that can't afford to purchase the supplies. Right now, you can stop by any Larry H. Miller store in the Denver area to donate any type of school supplies you can! Simply swing by and look for the vehicle that is packed with school supplies and drop your donation off.

Bags of Fun

Bags of Fun's mission is to deliver a Bag of Fun to every sick child whose health and happiness is both compromised and threatened. It all started with an amazing six year old named Gabby Krause. Unfortunately, Gabby passed away in 2004 after a 19 month battle against brain cancer. However, Gabby was always able to smile and laugh all the way through her chemotherapy. It is in Gabby's memory that the Gabby Krause Foundation was started, and in her spirit that the Bags of Fun program began. Gabby had the original Bag of Fun filled with toys and fun activities when she was battling her brain cancer. Her bag helped keep her busy and happy during long hospital visits. To the delight of other patients, she always shared her games and toys. Gabby wanted every child in need to have their very own Bag of Fun. 

We here at Larry H. Miller Nissan Highlands Ranch were touched when we heard Gabby's story. We wanted to help donate games and backpacks for other children who are fighting disease and need a little more fun in their lives. This past November, we were able to donate to Bags of Fun and help those kids in need.

Denver Santa Claus Shop

We are proud to say that with the collective power of the Larry H. Miller family, we were able to help host a toy drive for the Denver Santa Claus Shop this December in support of providing happy holidays to everyone in the Denver and extended Colorado area. The toy drive is going on now through December 10th and you can donate toys to any of the Denver area Larry H. Miller dealerships. With your help, we can ensure that every child has a happy holiday season. 

5 Days of Giving

Larry H. Miller is proud to announce that we will be participating in the 5 Days of Giving this December. The 5 Days of Giving will be an event where we as a group surprise five different local charities with a $10,000 check for five straight days. We are working with Denver Channel 7 to help spread our message and are asking that you help out wherever you can!

This year, we surprised five organizations with various donations. The first day, we surprised Longmont Meals on Wheels which is an organization that provides warm home-delivered meals to older clients who are in need. 

The second day, we visited The Brandon Rooney Memorial Foundation as part of our "5 Days of Giving." The foundation helps cover the burden families face by providing financial assistance during a child's catastrophic injury or major illness.

On Wednesday, we visited the Jeffco Action Center to surprise them with a $10,000 donation to use towards school supplies and warm winter coats, gloves and hats for the children they serve. One out of three students in Jeffco Schools qualifies for free or reduced lunch.

Brent's Place is a truly special place, and we're so honored to have surprised them with $10,000 to use towards their program as part of our "5 Days of Giving." When a family travels to the Denver area seeking life-saving medical treatment for their child, Brent's Place provides a safe-haven. They are one of the only long-term housing options capable of supporting an entire family during the long treatment process. And most importantly - they keep families together during a tough time.

The final day of "5 Days of Giving" we gave a $10,000 donation to the Denver Santa Claus Shop. For 89 years, the DSCS has reached out to serve those in need during the holiday season by providing toys, books and other holiday gifts for children aged newborn through 11 years old. Their mission is to give a toy to every girl and boy who needs one. In 89 years, they've helped more than one million children.
