Keeping Kids Warm by Charming Shoppes

Do you know of an elementary school that could benefit from the donation of warm, new winter coats for every child in their entire school? Keeping Kids Warm is soliciting nominations for the Fall 2010 Giving Season. Keeping Kids Warm was started in 1996 by Charming Shoppes, Inc., parent company to Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug, Catherines Plus Sizes, Lane Bryant Outlets, and Figi's, Gifts in Good Taste. Since its inception, the program has donated more than 135,000 warm, new winter coats to children in need in over 200 elementary schools across the country.

2010 will be the fifteenth year that Charming Shoppes' brands have sponsored the Keeping Kids Warm program as an ongoing effort to give back to local communities.

"Our family of brands is in the business of profiting from the sale of clothing, so giving back to the communities we serve by clothing those in need is a natural extension," says Jim Fogarty, President and CEO of Charming Shoppes, Inc. "In 2009, we provided nearly 20,000 winter coats to the children of close to 20 schools, and look forward to giving back to more communities in 2010."
