Curves holds food drive

Curves International is kicking off the 2012 Curves Food Drive on March 1 with a challenge to all Curves Clubs.

Curves International is kicking off the 2012 Curves Food Drive on March 1 with a challenge to all Curves Clubs to meet or exceed last year’s donations.

Curves of Summerland is asking its members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash throughout the month of March to support their local food bank.

In addition, the Curves of Summerland will waive the joining fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donation to their local food bank during the month of March

“Curves of Summerland is committed to supporting the health and well-being of our members, so the food drive is a natural extension of that commitment to the whole community,” said Brenda Stewart, owner of the fitness franchise. “Our food drive gives our members a way to reach out and support their neighbours.”

This year’s drive encourages Curves members to feel doubly good about themselves as they make time to exercise for good health and take time to help others in the community with a donation of nutritious food. Local Curves clubs may also qualify to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Curves International will award cash prizes to the clubs that collect the most food, the clubs that show the greatest increase in donations over the 2011 food drive, and to two additional clubs randomly selected from all the clubs who enter the contest.
