Meanwhile, Scott's company J Heather Inc. has entered into an exclusive joint venture with Ashley Stewart Stores to introduce a new line of intimate apparel for the plus-size woman, titled The Butterfly Collection By Jill Scott.
The entire clothing line will be personally inspired and designed by Jill Scott, in conjunction with Ashley Stewart whose name and image will be utilized in all marketing and merchandising concepts.
Scott's Blues Babe Foundation will benefit from the association with Ashley Stewart Stores Community Foundation. This has already begun with the launch of the Cecil B. Moore recreation center in Ms. Scott's hometown of North Philadelphia.
Condemned to be closed by the city due to funding shortages, an initial donation of more than $100,000 by the Foundation was able to renovate the auditorium, bathrooms, floors, and swimming pool, and provide new outdoor basketball courts and a new kitchen. With the city's help, the roof was repaired, the gym was renovated and the Center is now a safe haven for many kids, with attendance more than doubled for most programs.
