“We’re honored and excited to team up with Atlanta Beats Covid to provide face shields for teachers through our Labor Day Sales Event,” said Stacey Ellis, vice president of Jim Ellis Automotive Group.

In response to the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) available to teachers and students in the Atlanta area, Jim Ellis Automotive Group will be donating a portion of every sale of all new or pre-owned vehicles to Atlanta Beats Covid (ABC) during their upcoming Labor Day Sales event. The Labor Day Sales Event will take place from August 31 through September 7 — all 18 Jim Ellis family-owned and operated dealerships will participate.

As we enter a new school year in the midst of a pandemic, teachers and educational staff are having to navigate unchartered territories. Teachers are currently going into their schools to plan curriculum, setup their classrooms and meet with other staff members, all in a potentially vulnerable environment. Unfortunately, many schools are not able to provide educators or students with face shields, masks or other PPE. Many schools and teachers also encounter difficulties getting their hands on PPE due to a nationwide shortage and shipping delays.

During the holiday sales event, prospective buyers can shop in-person or at any one of the 18 Jim Ellis family-owned and operated dealerships. Shoppers also have the convenient option to shop from home using the Jim Ellis Express Way. With the Jim Ellis Express Way, shoppers can search and compare thousands of vehicles in the entire Jim Ellis dealership network from their phone, computer or tablet. Shoppers can also configure their payment, value their trade, secure financing and more. At-home services allow you to complete your entire purchase without ever visiting a dealership — including the option to submit all paperwork electronically, complete a test drive and take delivery of your vehicle at home.

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’re honored and excited to team up with Atlanta Beats Covid to provide face shields for teachers through our Labor Day Sales Event,” said Stacey Ellis, vice president of Jim Ellis Automotive Group. “Our hope is that we can help provide comfort and safety to those doing the important job of teaching our children.”
