Charming Shoppes Inc a leading multi-channel specialty apparel retailer and parent company of Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug, Catherines Plus Sizes, and Petite Sophisticate, is proud to honor Kristen Malfara of Melbourne Beach, Florida for her efforts in serving her community.

Ms. Malfara is one of five finalists who are eligible to receive a $20,000 charitable grant to be used towards her organization, The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project, from Charming Shoppes' Voices. One voice can lead to a chorus for change. Campaign.

Ms. Malfara will also receive a "Dream Come True" vacation for four to Walt Disney World Resort during the Year of a Million Dreams celebration. Finalists will be featured on MONTEL on Friday, February 22nd, 2008 during the one-hour Voices Winner's Finale.

"When I was notified by Charming Shoppes that I was one of the finalists for the Voices Campaign, I just about fell on the floor!" exclaimed Malfara.

"It was an overwhelming feeling and I burst into tears because I worked so hard for the past six years to raise $30,000 for The M.O.R.G.A.N. Project. To say that I am honored and thrilled would be the biggest understatement, that's for sure."

Voices is an annual campaign sponsored by Charming Shoppes that honors women across America for their passion, leadership and achievements as everyday women who raise their voice to create positive change.

Malfara was selected from thousands of women from across the country who were nominated with essays describing the difference they have made in their communities. This year's nominations recognized women championing causes from natural disaster relief and medical research, to working with seniors and disabled persons.
