SALT LAKE CITY – Nearly 2,000 employees of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies (LHM Group) will volunteer in communities across the state of Utah on Tuesday, April 26 during the Larry H. Miller Day of Service, an annual event that honors company founder, the late Larry H. Miller, on his birthday.
“The Day of Service is an important event for our family and employees because of the opportunity it provides to volunteer side-by-side in the communities where each of us live and work,” said Gail Miller, owner, Larry H.
