Fourth Annual Larry H. Miller Drive for Good Benefits Four Local Charities With $20,000

Larry H. Miller Downtown Toyota Spokane (LHM Downtown Toyota) and Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., announce the winners of the 2015 Larry H. Miller Drive for Good, an annual program that recognizes local nonprofit organizations in Spokane and the important role they play in serving the community. Camp Stix, Beyond Pink, Wishing Star Foundation and Safety Net will each receive a donation for $5,000 to use towards their organization’s mission. The four charities were selected via public voting during the month of April. “We hope these grants will offer support and enrich the lives of those in need in our community,” said Scott Brewer, general manager of LHM Downtown Toyota. “Each of these organizations provides an exceptional service to the residents of Spokane, and we are pleased to give back to such worthy causes that support women and children’s issues.” Camp Stix, a community-based summer camp that serves children and teens with diabetes, will utilize their donation to send children to camp for the summer, and the Wishing Star Foundation will put their donation towards granting wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses living in Spokane, the Tri-Cities and outlying areas. Beyond Pink, an organization that raises awareness and provides funding for thermography, a breast cancer detection technology, will use their donation to fund this procedure for those who otherwise would not be able to afford the service. Safety Net will provide emergency financial aid and educational support to foster youth and young adults in their post-foster care years. The Drive for Good was created in 2012 in an effort to allow the public the opportunity to vote for the local nonprofit organization they felt was the most deserving. Since its inception, the Drive for Good has contributed to several nonprofits including Free Reign Therapeutic Riding, a group that provides therapeutic experiences to children and adults with disabilities through the use of adaptive riding and horsemanship programs and the ISAAC Foundation, which provides support for families with autism. LHM Downtown Toyota Spokane strongly believes in giving back in the community, and regularly supports local charities through donations, volunteer time and fundraising drives.
