Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Receives Checks from Jamesway and USPOULTRY at 2024 IPPE

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently received donations from Jamesway and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) during the International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the 2024 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), in Atlanta. The IPPE is the world’s largest annual trade show for the poultry and egg, animal food and meat industries.

Denis Kan, president of Jamesway, presented a check in the amount of $2,000 to Melisa Morrow, development officer and manager of Foundation events for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. USPOULTRY matched Jamesway’s contribution with Jarod Morrison, Farbest Foods and outgoing USPOULTRY chair, presenting the check. Christian Jordan, vice president of sales and marketing for Jamesway, and Nath Morris, president of USPOULTRY, joined in the presentation. Jamesway has donated to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for 14 years, and USPOULTRY has donated for 13 years.

"This is our 14th year of contributing to this worthy cause, and we are pleased to provide this donation to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta,” 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,” said Morrison.

“Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta relies on donors like Jamesway and USPOULTRY to accomplish its mission of making kids better today and healthier tomorrow through philanthropic donations. Children’s offers medically needed healthcare to the children of Georgia, including families that could not afford to pay otherwise,” said Morrow.
