Cynthiana Curves is joining the Curves Internation event to benefit food banks by offering a waiver of joining fee to new members and providing existing members a way to give back to their communities.
Recognizing that the need for donations is greater than ever at local food banks across the nation, Curves International kicked off the 2012 Curves Food Drive on March 1 with a challenge to all Curves clubs to meet or exceed last year’s donations. Participating clubs are asking their members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash throughout the month of March to support area community food banks. In addition, they will waive the membership fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donate $30 to their local food bank during the month of March.
“Curves 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 communities where our clubs are located,” said Curves founder Diane Heavin. “Many families are struggling with basic expenses and need some help to make ends meet. Our food drive gives our members a way to reach out and support their neighbors.
“We would love to see all of our clubs top their donation levels from last year,” said Heavin. “But the main goal of our annual drive is to enlist the help of our members in re-stocking the shelves of local food pantries across the country. We also hope that new members will take this opportunity to give back to their local communities as they join our Curves community.”
