Knoxville, Tenn. Goody's Family Clothing, Inc. announced that Goody's will launch a new line of clothing designed by Ashley Judd for plus-sized women. The "Ashley Judd Plus" line will be available in 150 Goody's stores beginning in August 2008.
The news follows the strong performance of Ashley Judd's current collection, which has been sold exclusively at Goody's since September 2007.
A portion of sales from the Ashley Judd collection help support Goody's Good Deeds for Good Schools, a program that awards half a million dollars in grants to kindergarten through 12th grades in Goody's communities.
Proceeds go towards helping pay for items local schools need but cannot afford through regular channels of educational funding, such as renovations to school playgrounds, updated computer games or technology, and various arts programs.
