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

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently received donations from Henning Companies and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) during the International Poultry Expo, 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.

Henning Companies presented a check in the amount of $5,000 to Melisa Morrow, development officer and manager of Foundation events for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. USPOULTRY matched $2,000 of Henning Companies’ contribution, with Jarod Morrison, Farbest Foods and outgoing USPOULTRY chair, presenting the check. This is Henning Companies’ second donation to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

"We are really pleased to once again provide this donation to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. We have seen first-hand how Children’s has played an important part in helping children,” said Jason Anderson, vice president of agriculture, Henning Companies.

“Henning Companies leadership in contributing to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is appreciated by our Association. We are pleased to add to this donation,” said Morrison.

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