Christopher Omiecinski, president of Jamesway Incubator Company, presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to Melisa Morrow, development officer for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) matched Jamesway’s contribution with Sherman Miller, Cal-Maine Foods, and 2015 USPOULTRY chairman, presenting the check. Joining in the presentation were Miss America Betty Cantrell, gold medal Special Olympian Will Crain, Jill Morrow, development officer for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation, and Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black.

The presentation took place at the International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the 2016 International Production & Processing Expo in Atlanta. The IPPE is the world’s largest annual trade show for the poultry, feed and meat industries. This was Jamesway’s seventh year of donating to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. USPOULTRY has contributed for the last six years.

"Jamesway is known worldwide for our "Worry-Free" hatchery solutions. We hope that our contributions this year, and over the past seven years, bring a little of that same "Worry-Free" to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta,” said Omiecinski.

“USPOULTRY appreciates Jamesway’s leadership in making this contribution to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We are pleased to match this donation, as IPE has called Atlanta home for 68 years,” said Miller.

“Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is dependent on donors like Jamesway and USPOULTRY to fulfill its mission of making kids better today and healthier tomorrow through philanthropic support. Children's provides medically-needed healthcare to the children of Georgia, including families that could not otherwise afford to pay,” said Morrow.
