Larry H. Miller, founder of Larry H. Miller Dealerships, believed that prospering in business brought an obligation to enrich lives and to make the world a better place. On April 26, Phoenix employees will honor his mantra to “go about doing good until there is too much good in the world” by donating over 600 hours to the community for the ninth annual Larry H. Miller Day of Service.
Each year, employees pay tribute to the late Miller on his birthday by participating in community service projects in all the states where the Larry H. Miller Group does business. Since 2010, more than 9,744 employees have donated over 38,972 Day of Service hours at 192 locations in seven states. In Phoenix alone, employees have contributed more than 4,000 hours in Miller’s honor.
“Our mission and values are an integral part of business at our dealerships every day,” said Pat Kroneberger, senior vice president of operations, Larry H. Miller Dealerships. “This annual event gives our employees an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the Phoenix community and bring our values to life in a tangible way.”
