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. Paul Hill, West Liberty Foods, and 2016 USPOULTRY chairman, presented the check.
The presentation took place at the International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the 2017 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta. The IPPE is the world’s largest annual trade show for the poultry, feed and meat industries. This was Jamesway’s eighth year of donating to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. USPOULTRY has contributed for the last seven years.
Omiecinski said, "Jamesway is recognized worldwide for our 'Worry-Free' hatchery solutions. We hope that our contributions this year, and over the past eight years, 'free some worry' for the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.”
“USPOULTRY values Jamesway’s leadership in contributing to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We are pleased to match this donation, as IPE has called Atlanta home for 69 years,” said Hill.
“Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is dependent on donors like Jamesway and USPOULTRY to achieve 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.
