We are proud to announce that Jim Ellis Automotive Group successfully raised $35,000 for Atlanta Beats Covid (ABC) during our Jim Ellis Labor Day Sales Event! 

All 18 Jim Ellis family-owned and operated dealerships participated in the Labor Day sales event that spanned from August 31 through September 7. A portion of every sale of all new or pre-owned vehicles was donated in order for ABC to supply personal protective equipment (PPE) to teachers and special needs students in the communities we serve.

Many schools and teachers encounter difficulties getting their hands on PPE due to a nationwide shortage and shipping delays. Often times, schools do not provide these to the teachers. The proceeds of the Jim Ellis Labor Day Sales Event will greatly help to support ACB’s continuation of purchasing materials and distribution of face shields throughout the Metro Atlanta area.

ABC is an ad-hoc group of volunteer makers, engineers, fabricators, seamsters and other Southeast industry experts that was founded to address the huge PPE shortage facing our medical workers and has now expanded to help our educators during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 2020, ABC has provided over 28,000 pieces of PPE to the Atlanta community and 2,357 face shields to area schools since July 2020.  

“We wanted to aid ABC on their fabulous work in helping teachers, educators and students have personal protective equipment, like face shields, that will help keep them safe during this very challenging time of getting back to school”, said Jimmy Ellis, President of Jim Ellis Automotive Group.  “We really wanted to support them in purchasing more material so they can continue making PPE for those who desperately need it.”

Thanks to our customers, we're able to support many local organizations dedicated to serving our community. Whether it's supporting child education programs, filling local food banks, or partnering with organizations to provide shelter for the homeless, the Jim Ellis Automotive Group is dedicated to serving those in need. Thank you for choosing Jim Ellis Automotive—“where you can always expect the best!”
