Curves fitness centers will be hosting a food drive for families in need from Mar. 1-31.
Curves locations will collect non-perishable items and monetary donations for local food banks. The goal, according to Curves Founder Diane Heavin, is for the community to come together to help families in need.
"At the core of our business is the message that women are stronger when they rally together, and that is the point we hope to bring home with our food drive," said Heavin. "We want to show our communities just how powerful the generosity of our members can be."
Members who donate a bag of groceries or make a minimum donation of $30 during the month of March will receive a reusable Curves grocery freezer bag for free. Non-members who do likewise between Mar. 8 - 20 can join Curves for free. Curves will waive the cost to join.
As part of this effort, Curves locations will be participating in a company-wide contest for the most food drive donations collected by Curves locations across the nation. Winners will receive one of several cash prizes to be donated to their local food bank.
Each year, Curves locations collectively donate millions of pounds of food to feed the hungry.
"We hope women in the Winder area will come together and participate in this initiative," added Heavin. "Even if you’re not thinking about joining a gym, you can still drop off your donations. There are so many families – right here in our own community – who need our help."
