Stuff for Students Brings in School Supplies for Local Students

Our Stuff for Students school supply drive has come to an end and we’re thrilled to announce that with your help, we were able to collect $23,500 in supplies during the drive! Throughout the month of August, we collected donations in partnership with 9News and Volunteers of American Colorado Branch to help Colorado youth be prepared for the school year ahead.

“We are fortunate to have a great team of partners like Larry H. Miller Dealerships who come together to support 'Stuff for Students' every year,” said Bradley Gulley, director of volunteer programs, Volunteers of America Colorado Branch. “Thanks to the donations from Larry H. Miller Dealerships, their employees, and their customers, families can focus on school and not the financial burden of the cost of school supplies. These contributions will make a real difference in the communities we serve.”

 

The cost of school supplies continues to increase and parents can spend upwards of $900 on supplies for one high school student, according to VOA. In addition, approximately 23 percent of the 743,255 students in the counties served by VOA live in poverty, which is high compared to the state average of 14.7 percent.

Miller Volkswagen Lakewood, we thank you for all your donations during our Stuff for Students drive and are excited about the support we can provide to our community as we continue to work together.
