Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a non-profit pediatric clinical care provider that manages more than 1 million patient visits each year.
During those visits, the family support team at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta “helps kids feel like kids” by providing children with pediatric cancer services such as music therapy, visits from hospital facility dogs and one-on-one sessions with on-site schoolteachers and chaplains.
The Jim Ellis Automotive Group recognizes the importance of the service, noting that the service is helpful for pediatric cancer patients who often spend long stretches of time in the hospital for treatment. The auto group has launched its annual holiday giving campaign supporting the fight against pediatric cancer at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Through Jan. 2, all 18 Jim Ellis family-owned and operated dealerships will donate a portion of every sale of all new or pre-owned vehicles to the Children’s family support team.
“We know that pediatric patients need all the care in the world so this holiday season, we want to ensure more joyous memories for those who need it most,” Jim Ellis Automotive Group vice president Stacey Ellis said in a news release.
“Together, we can help give kids the gift of growing up,” Ellis said.
The automotive group says that through its program, Jim Ellis Automotive Group, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and purchasers of a new vehicle at one of Jim Ellis’ dealerships can further support the family support team’s mission.
