Your “Give Us Five” Donations at Work

Larry H. Miller Charities enriches lives by supporting 501(c)(3) nonprofits that benefit women and children who live in the communities where the Larry H. Miller Company conducts business. Funding is primarily directed toward programs that focus on health and education needs, and more than $120,000 has been contributed in recent months.

A donation in Colorado to the Community Foundation Serving Boulder County is aiding victims of the Marshall Fire disaster, which destroyed nearly 1,000 homes. In Colorado Springs, a contribution to Remount Foundation is delivering equine-assisted therapy to military members, veterans, first responders, and their families to help them heal from trauma. A donation to Warm Hearts – Warm Babies is providing free layettes to parents of newborns in crisis. A grant to The Place is helping homeless teens and young adults in need of shelter, while funding supplied to Springs Rescue Mission is assisting homeless women. Safe Passage, a children’s advocacy center that offers comprehensive legal, investigative and medical services to victims of child abuse and their families, received support for facility needs.

Discovery Center of Idaho was awarded funding for its STEM field trip program, which serves more than 11,000 annually. Educators are provided with classroom materials and curriculum, and needs-based scholarships are made available so that schools with low-income students can participate. A donation to the Education Foundation of West Ada School District in Idaho is helping Centennial High School obtain an advanced interactive television that facilitates improved learning. The high school serves as a magnet school for refugee students.

In Utah, a contribution to Sanpete Pantry is providing food to students in Sanpete County who need nutritional support over the weekend when school lunch and breakfast are not available. A grant awarded to Common Ground Outdoor Adventures is enabling children and youth with disabilities to participate in outdoor recreation and activity opportunities. Funding donated to Writers Cubed is supporting its Teen Author Boot Camp (TABC) Book Drop program, which provides free books and author visits to Title I schools.

Employees of the Larry H. Miller Company can support LHM Charities through the Give Us Five payroll deduction program. Each dollar contributed is matched by the Miller family, which increases the impact. Talk to your payroll or People & Culture representative to find out how you can sign up and make a difference in your community!

LHM Charities donated $10,000 to Sanpete Pantry for its Kids Packs program, which provides packs of food to students who experience food insufficiency on weekends since they don’t have access to school meals during that time.

Larry H. Miller Charities’ donation to Writers Cubed (dba Teen Author Boot Camp) will provide free books to students at low-income schools. Authors of the donated books then visit the school and talk to students.
