Curves kicks off food drive in April

By
March 25, 2011 |

During the month of April, Curves gyms in the Davis area will participate in the 13th annual Curves Food Drive to collect non-perishable food and cash donations to benefit area food bank.

Current members who make a $30 donation or an equivalent donation of food are eligible to receive a Curves reusable Food Drive grocery bag. And, April 4-17, Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who donate a bag of non-perishable food or make a minimum donation of $30.

“Our goal is to top the donation that we made last year,” Curves founder Diane Heavin said in a news release. “This is a great opportunity for the members of our Curves community to help strengthen the Davis-area community, too. Everything that our members donate at their local clubs will benefit local families in need.”

In addition to the food and monetary donations that each gym collects, Curves International is offering gyms the opportunity to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Prizes will be awarded to clubs with the most food collected, clubs who beat their 2010 donation level by the largest amount and to two randomly selected clubs drawn from all the clubs who enter the contest. Curves clubs have donated more than 61 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada since 2004.

This year’s food drive will kick off as Curves International founders Gary and Diane Heavin are featured on ABC’s inspirational new show, “Secret Millionaire,” airing at 8 p.m. Sunday, April 3, on Channel 10.

“The past few years have been difficult for many families,” Diane Heavin said in a news release. “Curves’ annual food drive is one way that everyone in the Davis area can make a real difference for a community family that is struggling. We encourage everyone, not just our members or those who are thinking about joining one of our gyms, to make a cash donation or drop off a bag of non-perishable food items in April.”
