ATLANTA — Christopher Omiecinski, president of Jamesway Incubator Co., 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 matched Jamesway’s contribution with Jerry Moye, Hendrix Genetics, and 2017 USPOULTRY chairman, presenting the check.
This was Jamesway’s ninth year of donating to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and USPOULTRY has contributed for the last eight years.
The check presentation took place at the International Poultry Expo, part of the 2018 International Production & Processing Expo, in Atlanta. The IPPE is the world’s largest annual trade show for the poultry, feed and meat industries.
“Jamesway is recognized worldwide for our ‘Worry-Free’ hatchery solutions. We hope that our contributions this year, and over the past nine years, continue to ‘free some worry’ for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,” said Omiecinski.
“Jamesway’s leadership in contributing to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is valued by our association. We are pleased to again match this donation, as IPE has called Atlanta home for 70 years,” said Moye.
“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.
