Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise Buys Girl Scout Out of Cookies - Cassidee M

Employees and general managers of Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise played a heavy hand in helping Courtney from the Silver Sage Council of Girls Scouts Idaho reach her goal of 2500 boxes sold to make it to Disney Land. Courtney visited the Boise dealership in hopes of getting a few boxes off her hands, feeling confident that at the least a couple salesmen and perhaps some service advisors would bite. Little did she know that would sell nearly 150 boxes to not only employees and team members, but customers too! LHM Subaru Boise's general manager, Ty Leuthold, bought 40 boxes to himself.

LHM Subaru Boise Employees Make Lunch for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho - Cassidee M

On March 16th, 2023, employees from Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise visited Idaho's only Ronald McDonald House to make lunch for those staying in the house. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho are helping families face the burden of their child’s illness together. RMCH Idaho knows that these families have enough worries attending to the complicated medical needs of their child, maintaining their jobs, caring for other children or family members and keeping up with medical and out-of-pocket expenses. The 47-room Idaho Ronald McDonald House serves families with seriously ill or injured children being treated at a Boise area medical facility. At the House, families have a warm, comfortable place to sleep, eat, and find support, care, understanding and compassion from staff, volunteers and other families staying at the House. The house relies on support from the Boise community to be as successful and as vital to these families as they are. The LHM Subaru Boise team knows how important involvement from volunteers and donors are to this organization and want to contribute by having a hand in feeding the families that are currently staying at Idaho's only RMHC. They made two dozen blueberry muffins, a dozen chocolate chip cookies, six family sized servings of hamburger casserole and five family sized servings of Caeser salad. Shortly after, visitors were able to serve themselves a delicious and nutritious lunch.

Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise Donates 500 Pairs of Socks to Local Homeless Shelters - Cassidee M

As part of Subaru's Love to Help® event, Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise was able to donate 500 pairs of socks to Boise Rescue Mission Ministries to be distributed out to those experiencing homelessness in the Boise area. Jason Billester with Boise Rescue Mission accepted the donation from LHM Subaru at Boise Rescue Mission Warehouses with resounding praise. "Donations like these make all the difference when it comes to keeping our residents happy and healthy. You know, it all starts with a pair of warm socks," Billester stated. "Those experiencing homelessness in the area are able to come get a new pairs of socks from us that will keep them comfortable in their everyday, then they start staying in one of our shelters that provides food, showers, beds and a sense of community. Everyone here has a common goal; to improve their lives. Soon, they are interviewing for jobs and getting approved for their own housing. While socks may seem like a small contribution, they are truly the start of renewed lives for our residents." Alongside LHM Subaru's team were Idaho Subaru Ambassadors Julie and Wayne Croft. The Croft's were generous enough to bring their own donation bags for Boise Rescue Ministries including gloves, toothbrushes, deodorant and handwarmers. Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise thanked those involved with this statement put out on their social media: "We are so proud to be able to present a donation of 500 pairs of socks to the Boise Rescue Mission Ministries this month. As part of Subaru Loves to Help, Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise is helping to support those in need by providing one of the most requested items needed by those experiencing homelessness: socks. This small item, most of us take for granted, can truly have an enormous impact by providing comfort and maintaining the health of those experiencing homelessness. Thank you to Subaru America, Jason Billester with BRM and our loyal customer base that help make donations like these possible!"

Larry H. Miller Subaru Sponsors The Speedy Foundation's Hope Golf Tournament - Cassidee M

On October 14, 2022, Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise participated as a hole sponsor at The Speedy Foundations Hope Golf Tournament at Warm Springs Golf Course in Boise, ID. We had a golf team play in the tournament as well as set up a booth at our sponsorship hole to inform the tournament participants about LHM Subaru Boise. Funds raised from this tournament benefit suicide prevention efforts in Idaho. The Speedy Foundation is partnering with Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise for Subaru’s Share the Love event as their local charity nomination. The Speedy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization named after 3-time Olympian, Jeret “Speedy" Peterson of Boise, ID, and Park City, UT, someone near and dear to the foundation who the world lost to suicide. Their mission is to prevent suicide, support mental health education, and promote conversations to end stigma. The Speedy Foundation provides education and training to advocate for suicide prevention in their community. They believe that suicide can be prevented by advocating for those who struggle with mental illness, promoting conversations to end the stigma around mental illness, and by providing mental health education. Through their workshops, the Speedy Foundation helps transform anyone into skilled Mental Health first aiders. They provide free online C.A.L.M. (Counseling on Access to Lethal Means) training, aimed at reducing access to potentially lethal material by those at risk of suicide through educating their loved ones. They aim to equip young people with the tools they need to recognize mental health crises and how connect with life-saving intervention resources to support themselves and advocate for their peers. Larry H. Miller Subaru Boise has chosen The Speedy Foundation for our local charity nomination because we value the importance that mental health plays in everyone’s lives. Many of our team members hold suicide prevention close to their hearts and recognize that The Speedy Foundation is doing vital work by providing resources, ending mental health stigma, and educating our community.

Standing Tall in the City of Trees - Chris D

Larry H. Miller Subaru staff from multiple departments recently bundled up to volunteer on the Boise Greenbelt for the day to help protect trees from the elements [and pesky beavers] for the winter. Despite the cold temps, rain and snow flurries(!), the crew diligently aided Boise Parks and Recreation's efforts to keep the many mighty Black Cottonwoods anchoring the City of Trees' premier walking trail standing tall. Employees cleaned up and wrapped dozens of trees along a very popular stretch of the Greenbelt right along the river in Southeast Boise. We love branching out and showing our green roots to aid community projects that preserve our natural [and beautiful] habitat!

Boise Dealerships Stay in the Spirit of Giving - Chris D

Larry H. Miller Subaru's GM Ty Leuthold, along with managers from the three other Boise dealerships in the LHM Auto Group, proudly presented a $20,000 grant in December 2021 to Children's Home Society of Idaho in support of their Community Support Program to help meet the mental health needs of local Idaho children suffering from abuse, grief, depression, eating disorders, self-esteem issues and more through specialized therapy, counseling, and other crucial services often overlooked, especially for kids. Children’s Home Society of Idaho currently provides support to 90+ families each day regardless of their ability to pay. Now, we hope their Community Support Program, and its five-decade legacy, can reach and help even more! This gift was made on behalf of Larry H. Miller Charities, a fund largely made of employee contributions.

Boise Subaru Adopts Classrooms at Koelsch Elem. - Chris D

Earlier this fall, staff visited Koelsch Elementary School in Boise to proudly present teachers supplies the community collected for our six adopted classrooms during Subaru Loves Learning month. [Trust us, everyone was smiling!] We later received the nicest and most pleasant surprise: letters from Ms. Schroeder's 4th grade class at Koelsch. We truly appreciate these notes and loved hearing about the fun additions to their room. (Teaming with AdoptAClassroom.org, Larry H. Miller Subaru is one of 600+ Subaru dealers nationwide supporting education by providing local students with some of the resources needed to help ensure a successful school year.)

Helping Those Who Need It Most - Chris D

Our hearts are as full as these carts are! Customers, community members and staff donated 340 sets of pajamas and other winter clothes for local families in need as part of Larry H. Miller Dealerships' annual Driven to Assist initiative. Overflowing our showroom rally car trunk and backseat, contributions nearly doubled last year's gifts. We then joyfully met the other Larry H. Miller Boise dealerships at the Boise Rescue Mission Ministries warehouse to drop off all the items. The collection will be distributed to individuals and families staying at City Light Home for Women & Children (who we also visited to donate blankets), River of Life Men's Mission and Valley Women and Children’s Shelter in Christmas packages. Being part of such a generous community doing good never gets less gratifying!
