With the support of our customers, Jim Ellis Automotive Group closed out the sixth annual Holiday Giving Campaign with a $65,000 donation to the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. A portion of the profit for each new or used vehicle sold at any of our 20 dealerships between December 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, contributed to the donation.
Each year, Jim Ellis Automotive Group selects a different Atlanta-area charity to support through the holiday giving campaign. Over the last five years, Jim Ellis Automotive has donated over $250,000 to groups supporting women and children in need across the Atlanta-area just from the holiday giving campaigns.
Established in 1995, the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta cares for more than 2,400 children with cancer and more than 5,800 children with blood disorders annually. The Holiday Giving Campaign donation will be directed to the Family Support Team, a team of 35 individuals who help provide for the emotional and spiritual needs of the patients in the form of child life, psychology, chaplaincy and social work positions.
“We are proud to partner with the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,” said Jim Ellis Automotive Group Vice President Stacey Ellis Hodges. “We hope our donation can give a child the gift of growing up.”
“We are incredibly grateful to the Jim Ellis family for their long-standing commitment to the thousands of children cared for at Children’s and the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center,” said Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center Development Director Sara Orton. “Their support is invaluable as we continue to provide the best care for the kids of Georgia and beyond.”
