This week Larry H. Miller dealerships completed their month-long, statewide Luggage of Love campaign, which supports Arizona children transitioning into foster care.
A caravan of 20 vehicles from Larry H. Miller dealerships delivered 320 new suitcases, 843 blankets, 296 pillows, 843 pajamas, and 2,477 packages of socks to the Arizona Department of Child Safety.
The items of comfort were collected through employee and public donations.
In total, the donations are estimated at $94,165 in value and will help the more than 700 Arizona children entering foster care every month.
“Larry H. Miller Dealerships created this drive to provide some comfort to Arizona foster children during a very trying time,” said Pat Kroneberger, senior vice president of Larry H. Miller Dealerships, Arizona. “Often, when children are removed from their homes and taken to safe foster care environments, they have no time to pack basic necessities. We’re happy to help children across the state transition into their safe environment with items they need to feel more at ease.”
