ATLANTA, February 3, 2023 (Newswire.com) - With the support of customers, Jim Ellis Automotive Group closed out the sixth annual Holiday Giving Campaign with a $65,000 donation to the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. A portion of the profit for each new or used vehicle sold at all of the 20 Jim Ellis Automotive dealerships between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31, 2022, contributed to the donation.
Jim Ellis Automotive Group selects a different Atlanta-area charity to support through their annual holiday giving campaign. Over the last five years, Jim Ellis Automotive has donated over $250,000 to groups serving women and children in need across the Atlanta area from the holiday giving campaigns alone.
Established in 1995, the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta cares for more than 2,400 children with cancer and more than 5,800 children with blood disorders annually. The Holiday Giving Campaign donation will be directed to the Family Support Team, a team of 35 individuals who help provide for the emotional and spiritual needs of the patients in the form of child life, psychology, chaplaincy and social work positions.
"We are proud to partner with the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta," said Jim Ellis Automotive Group Vice President Stacey Ellis Hodges. "We hope our donation can give a child the gift of growing up."
"We are incredibly grateful to the Jim Ellis family for their long-standing commitment to the thousands of children cared for at Children's and the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center," said Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center Development Director Sara Orton. "Their support is invaluable as we continue to provide the best care for the kids of Georgia and beyond."

Inventory Accuracy Roundtable with Carl Brown
Retailers meet in an discussion on Inventory Accuracy with RFID hosted by Carl Brown, President of SimplyRFiD
DALLAS, February 3, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Carl Brown, founder and President of Simply RFiD, TikTok wonder, and RFID expert, hosts a weekly online roundtable "Transforming Inventory Accuracy." This roundtable brings up to six top retailers together to discuss how accurate inventory enables today's omnichannel supply chains - and, how to get there from here.
Quarterly inventories are obsolete. To compete today, inventories must be done daily or weekly.
Before RFID, the only choice was manual barcode counts that took days and were only 75-85% accurate (Source: Gartner Contemporary Retail Report, November 2021). Still, when RFID became viable around 2008, the value of RFID wasn't there because the concept of how to use a global accurate inventory didn't exist. Omnichannel and e-commerce are driving requirements for retailers. Store inventory must be connected to the web and it must be accurate.
This weekly roundtable explores the best practices for achieving 99% levels of inventory accuracy. "Store managers often think they have 95%+ accuracy - but, how do they know? Once RFID goes in, the truth is closer to 70%," says Carl Brown. "That's normal. It's impossible to measure without RFID - in this roundtable we discuss how to move from the unknown to the known, in an open format of sharing best practices and outcomes."
Retailers in previous roundtables include:
- Ralph Lauren
- Urban Outfitters
- Dollar Tree
The next roundtable is February 7 at noon, Eastern. Roundtables are closed door. Press may apply to attend and audit, along with retailers at https://www.simplyrfid.com/mtb.

ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 30, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Junk Car Medics, a national junk car buying service in the USA, has released a report on the most junked car brands and models in 2022 based on an analysis of over 50,000 cars junked through their online portal. A junk car is defined as a vehicle that is damaged beyond repair or otherwise undrivable and has no value except for its parts and metal for scrapping. The majority of junked vehicles were from the early 2000s, which were also in high demand as new cars during that time.
According to Junk Car Medics, Ford and Chevrolet had the highest percentages of junked cars in 2022, with 12.89% and 12.79%, respectively. When looking at the most commonly junked car models, the Honda Accord took the top spot. The other top junked models include the Nissan Altima, Honda Civic, and Toyota Camry.
The percentages of individual junked car models were relatively low. The leader, Honda Accord, amounted for only 3.34% of all junked cars, and the top individual vehicle, the 2005 Nissan Altima, amounted to only 0.34%, indicating that Americans drive many different types of vehicles.
The report also notes that, despite not having any specific model ranking within the top four junked car models list, or the top five individual vehicles list, Ford and Chevrolet emerged on top of the most junked car brands list, reflecting their historical dominance of the U.S. auto market, and their variety of models.
"At Junk Car Medics, we're always aiming to provide valuable resources that enable the general public to make informed decisions about their vehicles," said Todd Bialaszewski, CEO of Junk Car Medics. "Our data suggests that the longevity of sedans, such as the Honda Accord, has contributed to their popularity as junked cars. Additionally, it's worth noting that while Ford and Chevrolet were the top brands for junked cars, none of their models made the top five list of most junked models, which were all from Honda, Nissan, and Toyota."
