Arrow Celebrates 10th Year As Parade Sponsor

For the past decade Arrow Exterminators' employees have been amusing spectators on Peachtree Street by participating in the annual Children's Healthcare of Atlanta® (CHOA) Christmas Parade. This was an especially exciting year for Arrow who celebrated their 10th anniversary at the event with over forty enthusiastic walkers who expertly maneuvered a two story festive balloon down the three mile route.

In its 27th year, the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta® parade commences The Festival of Trees, a month long philanthropic holiday event to raise money for Children's pediatric hospitals Scottish Rite, Egleston and Hughes Spalding. Ranked as one of the top three pediatric hospitals in the country by Child® magazine, CHOA enhances the lives of children through excellence in patient care, research and education.

"The parade has become an annual holiday tradition for our employees, some of whose own lives have been touched by the valuable services provided by Children's" commented Joe Thomas, CEO of Arrow Exterminators. "We are very fortunate to have this outstanding care available in our own back yard and Arrow is thrilled to be affiliated with this worthwhile event" he added.
