Larry H. Miller Dealerships Celebrates a Decade of “Driving for Coats” Campaign
Larry H. Miller Dealerships hosted its tenth annual “Driving for Coats” community coat, sock, and underwear drive to benefit the homeless community served by the Boise Rescue Mission Ministries (BRMM). New and gently used coats of all sizes were collected during the month of November to keep adults and children warm this winter. The Rescue Mission provides safe shelter to more than 400 homeless individuals and families each night during the cold winter months.
A total of 230 lbs. of coats were collected this year.
Boise Rescue Mission Ministries’ President and CEO, Rev. Bill Roscoe said, “We appreciate the effort by Larry H. Miller Dealerships to provide warm coats for the people we serve at the Rescue Mission. Sadly, many of our guests, even children, come to us without warm clothing. These coats are a wonderful way to say, “We care!” Larry H. Miller’s employees and customers are great examples of this community’s compassion.”
