Larry H. Miller Dealerships: A caravan of 20 vehicles from Larry H. Miller Dealerships delivered 267 new suitcases, 356 blankets, 202 pillows, 623 pajamas, 1,307 packages of socks, and 183 “completed kits” (suitcases that contain a blanket, pillow, pajamas, and socks – all tailored to a foster child of a specific gender and age) to the Arizona Department of Child Safety. The items were collected through employee and public donations during the company’s second annual, monthlong, statewide “Luggage of Love” campaign, which supports Arizona children who are transitioning into foster care. In total, the donations are estimated at $ 105,225 in value and will help the 500-700 Arizona children entering foster care every month.
