“Feed the Need” with Curves this month

 

Curves International announces its 15th Annual Food Drive, “Feed the Need,” and challenges Curves’ club members in the U.S. and Canada to meet a 100,000 donation goal during the month of March.   Cranbrook Curves is asking its members and individuals from the community to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash to support their local food bank.  In addition, Cranbrook  Curves will waive the joining 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.

When combined donations from all Curves clubs reach the 100,000 donation goal, Curves International will donate 10% of their March 2013 profits to “Blessings in a Backpack,” a non-profit organization that ensures that impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year.

“This year’s theme, ‘Feed the Need,’ really represents both what we want to accomplish with this year’s food drive and what we do as a business,” said Carla Lowden, owner of Cranbrook Curves.  “We want to help feed local families and school children who would otherwise go hungry on the weekends – and we also want to ‘feed the need’ of local women for a health and fitness program that fits their busy lifestyle.”

Cranbrook Curves raised 2,167 pounds of food last year during the annual food drive.
