Curves collecting food in 14th annual drive

Curves International will collect food during its 14th annual Curves Food Drive in the month of March.

Participating clubs are asking their members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash through the month to support area community food banks. Curves International is challenging each Curves to meet or exceed last year’s donations.

In addition, Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donate $30 to a local food bank this week through March 25.

This year’s theme is “Good for Your Body and Your Soul,” which encourages Curves members to feel doubly good about themselves as they make time to exercise for good health and take time to help others.

Curves International will award cash prizes to clubs that collect the most food, the clubs that show the greatest increase in donations since 2011 and to two additional clubs randomly selected from those that enter the contest.

“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,” Curves founder Diane Heavin said. “We would love to see all of our clubs top their donation levels from last year. But the main goal of our annual drive is to enlist the help of our members in restocking the shelves of local food pantries across the country.”

Call the Houghton Lake Curves, 1840 West Houghton Lake Drive (M-55), at 366-1710 or visit www.curves.com for information.
