Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently received donations from Jamesway Incubator Company and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) during the International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the 2019 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta. The IPPE is the world’s largest annual trade show for the poultry, animal food and meat industries.
Denis Kan, 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. USPOULTRY matched Jamesway’s contribution with John Prestage, Prestage Farms, and incoming USPOULTRY chairman, presenting the check. Christopher Jordan, vice president of sales and marketing for Jamesway Incubator Company, and John Starkey, president of USPOULTRY, joined in the presentation. This was Jamesway’s 10th year of donating to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and USPOULTRY has contributed for the last nine years.
"Support for the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is a longstanding tradition with Jamesway, and we are happy to support this fantastic organization again this year,” said Kan.
“Jamesway’s continued leadership in contributing to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is appreciated by our Association. We are pleased to again match this donation, as IPE has called Atlanta home for 71 years,” said Prestage.
“Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is reliant on donors like Jamesway and USPOULTRY to accomplish its mission of making kids better today and healthier tomorrow through philanthropic contributions. Children’s provides medically-needed healthcare to the children of Georgia, including families that could not otherwise afford to pay,” said Morrow.
