Atlanta (May 1, 2017) – The Jim Ellis Automotive Group teams up with clients to raise money for local first responders.
After wrapping up 2016 with a successful giving campaign that resulted in a $65,000 donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, Jim Ellis Automotive has identified another opportunity to give back and new beneficiaries to give to. Jim Ellis President Jimmy Ellis has decided he wants to kick summer off with a similar campaign that will go to benefit local first responders.
All 14 Jim Ellis family-owned and operated dealerships will participate in this first responder campaign, where a portion of every new or pre-owned vehicle purchase during the month of May will go to local first responders. The campaign will run for the entire month and will apply to any vehicles purchased from a Jim Ellis dealership within the month.
“After seeing the generosity of our dealerships and the support of our clients during the campaign with Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, I wanted to identify another local group that could benefit from more of this generosity,” said Jim Ellis Automotive Group President Jimmy Ellis. “Local first responders came to mind as a group that we would not only like to donate to during the month of May, but a group that we want to honor throughout the year with special incentives to say, ‘thank you for all you do and the support you have given our business over the last 46 years.’ We are also so thankful for our customers that rally behind us in supporting each of these giving campaigns. Let’s see what we can do in May to give back to those who sacrifice daily for our safety and wellbeing!”
In addition to the cash donations that will be made to the local first responders that serve our dealership areas, Jim Ellis Automotive will also be offering special discounts for the rest of 2017 to all eligible first responders. As a token of appreciation, all qualifying first responders can take advantage of $500 off their next vehicle when purchased from Jim Ellis. That is $500 off of the best negotiated price at any of our Jim Ellis dealerships. On the parts and service side, eligible first responders will receive 15 percent off parts and service at any Jim Ellis dealership through the end of 2017.
Jim Ellis Automotive will be working with local first responders to setup additional “Thank You” events throughout the rest of this year at both our dealerships and at local police precincts and fire stations. More information on these events will be made available to local first responders as these events are finalized.
