ATLANTA, Nov. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In appreciation for police officers, teachers and first responders in their community, Jim Ellis Buick GMC Mall of Georgia provided 171 prepared meals for the Gwinnett County Sherriff's Office, Gwinnett County Fire Department Station 24 and teachers at Buford Elementary.
On October 23, 2020, the Jim Ellis Buick GMC Mall of Georgia team, along with Vice President Stacey Ellis, successfully delivered 171 meals, carefully placed inside a GMC Yukon XL Denali, in hopes to bring happiness to educators and first responders amid their workday. In a grassroots effort to support the local economy even more, the dealership elected a local restaurant, Bare Bones Steakhouse, to prepare mouth-watering boxed-meals for members of the community who are committed to the health, safety and education of Gwinnett County.
"It's great to have the opportunity to give back to your local providers who assist you with so many things that you don't even think about on a daily basis," says Jason Dowdy, general manager of Jim Ellis Buick GMC. "From our amazing school systems to first responders. They're always there to help us and any opportunity we get to thank them for all they do for us, we are happy to do so."
It was important for Jim Ellis Buick GMC to not only support first responders and teachers but also a local and family-owned restaurant to stimulate economic growth within their own backyard of Buford, Georgia. Restaurants have taken the brunt of difficulty of the pandemic and by purchasing locally, the dealership aims to revive local businesses like Bare Bones Steakhouse, who have recently reopened after shutting down as a result of Covid-19.
Jim Ellis Buick GMC Mall of Georgia falls under the tutelage of the Jim Ellis Automotive Group, who will be celebrating 50 years in business in 2021. The company and each respective dealership is committed to supporting local and fostering relationships in the communities they serve.
