Gail Miller: Stepping into the Spotlight

By John Coon

February 18, 2014

I’m very concerned about the homeless issues—mostly because it is going down into the youth and the children. When we feed the homeless here at the arena, that’s the thing that strikes me—how many women and children will come through. It’s very sad to see how much need there is. I just think there has to be a concerted effort in the community to take care of that issue.

… Larry and I started—even before we bought our first dealership—being charitable in small ways as we could afford it. I remember the first time someone asked us for help and we gave them our life savings—which was $300. That’s one thing we felt very fortunate in. We did not covet money. We felt like it was a tool to do good things. And we didn’t ever have to worry about what the other one was thinking if we wanted to do something for someone because we were very aligned in that. When he died, my statement at the press conference was we intended to carry on this legacy and continue to do good in the community.

UBM: What have you learned about the importance of these causes through your involvement?

GM: They’re important because they affect all of us. We are all human beings and if we forget any segment of our society, we are less as a people for that. Just because someone is having a difficult time in life does not diminish their worth. If we can help them to get in a better position so they can use their talents and their own abilities, most of the time they go on and help someone else.
