November 2020

Leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, Larry H. Miller Volkswagen Avondale, Larry H. Miller Chrysler Jeep Avondale, and Larry H. Miller Dodge Ram Avondale are hosting a three-week "Driven to Assist" school supply drive to help nearly 6,000 children in the Avondale Elementary School District go back to in-person learning equipped with the individual school supplies required for adherence with COVID-19 safety guidelines.
"When we learned of the need for individual school supplies for students attending schools within the Avondale Elementary School District, we jumped at the opportunity to help," said Ana Games, Avondale controller, Larry H. Miller Dealerships. "Finding a need in the community and gathering together to fulfill the need is embedded in our company culture, but it's also a part of who we are individually; our employees love contributing to the community by giving back."
From November 9-30, Larry H. Miller Dealerships is asking employees and the public to help fill a vehicle in each of its three Avondale dealerships with school supplies. The most needed school supplies include glue sticks, colored pens, pencils, highlighters, loose leaf paper, small covered pencil sharpeners, washable markers, pencil bags, composition books, calculators, Expo markers (low odor), hand sanitizer, and tissues.
The district, which educates children in K-8th grade, returned to in-person learning at 50 percent capacity in October, and teachers have been faced with the challenge of not enough school supplies. Children are no longer able to share their supplies, due to safety concerns around the spread of COVID-19.
"Avondale Elementary School District is grateful to Larry H. Miller for their support in ensuring we are able to provide class supplies to develop individual sets for children," said Superintendent Dr. Betsy Hargrove. "Typically, we are able to share supplies such as crayons, markers, and scissors in classrooms and groups. This year, and with the concerns around COVID, all students are in need of individual sets to ensure safe use. As well, we have some students at home and others in the classroom and all students need to be able to have the supplies necessary to access the excellent instruction."
The school supplies will be delivered to the district during the week of December 1.


July 2020

LHM Dodge Ram Avondale has the incredible opportunity to give back to the community this summer. From July 20th - 31st Avondale Dodge has been proud to fill one of our trucks with non-perishables that will be shared with the community. All donations to St. Mary's Food Bank will go towards their Backpack Program, which helps sustain children with meals when they're not able to access school meal programs, as well as their general food bank. With school closures, and people facing unemployment, there has been an increase in the number of Arizona families facing food insecurities. "We know the pandemic is causing additional stress and forcing more families into food insecurity, so we're rallying our dealership employees and inviting the public and other local businesses to join us in collecting food for those in need at the most fundamental level," said Pat Kroneberger, senior vice president of operations, Larry H. Miller Dealerships.

We are proud to have launched our "Driven to Assist" campaign, this two-week food drive to support St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix. "The Driven to Assist campaign is happening at an ideal time. We're bracing for another rush as a result of the current COVID-19 surge in Arizona, and we're glad to have a community partner to help us through the urgency we're continuing to see." said Jerry Brown, director of public relations, St. Mary's Food Bank.

The Power of Partnership- Working Together to Provide Student Scholarships

The most significant accomplishments come through cooperation and partnership. In 1999, the president of Estrella MountainCommunity College shared his vision for a community where all students could pursue higher education. The vision caught fire with many individuals and organizations who committed to make the vision a reality.

The Hispanic Leadership Forum delOeste , the Estrella Rotary Foundation, Inc. and a very unique group of auto dealers, the West Valley Auto Alliance* all took up the cause, and to date have awarded over 530 scholarships to students who otherwise may not have had the opportunity toachieve their educational goals.

This is the 11th year that Avondale Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep, Gateway Chevrolet, Tom Jones Ford and Yates Buick GMC have donated a $30,000 vehicle for this scholarship fundraiser.

We give special thanks to theWest Valley Auto Alliance for continuing its partnership this year. With the support of these outstanding dealerships, the annual car raffle scholarship fundraiser can continue and help students achieve their dreams and transform their lives.
