Arrow Exterminators Celebrates 14th Year as Sponsor for Parade Benefiting Children’s Healthcare
For over a decade Arrow Exterminator's employees have been
entertaining spectators in downtown Atlanta by sponsoring and
participating in the annual Children's Healthcare of Atlanta®
(CHOA) Holiday Parade. Over 80 employees braved the cold to walk in
the parade and expertly maneuvered two-story character balloons,
the Three Blind Mice, down the one mile route.
The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta® holiday parade, the
largest parade in the southeast, kicks off the holiday season by
raising money for pediatric hospitals including Scottish Rite,
Egleston and Hughes-Spalding. The proceeds from this year's event
will exceed $150,000 and help fund programs and equipment to serve
the patients and families of CHOA. Ranked consistently as one of
the top pediatric hospitals in the country by Parents® magazine and
U.S. News & World Report, 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 Emily Thomas
Kendrick, Arrow's chief executive officer and president. "We are so
thankful for the opportunity to be affiliated with such a
worthwhile event that not only provides the community with a
memorable holiday experience but also raises funds to support the
healthcare needs of children around the world," she added.
