Curves drive collects 1,101 pounds
Curves, the world's largest fitness franchiser, recently announced that the 2008 Curves Food Drive brought in 1,101 pounds of food in New Richmond which will benefit New Richmond's food shelf. Worldwide, Curves members donated almost 3,000 tons of food.
This was Curves International's 10th Annual Food Drive and Curves of New Richmond's 10th time participating. This March, women had the opportunity to donate a bag of groceries for a reduced Curves membership fee. Thousands of women took advantage of this opportunity to help themselves become healthier while contributing to the needs of their community's less fortunate residents.
Last month's food drive accounted for five new memberships at the New Richmond Curves. Overall, the Food Drive accounted for almost 75,000 new Curves memberships.
"Curves and our members are delighted to help our community," said Carla Kelley, New Richmond Curves franchise owner. "The Food Drive is an excellent program that fits perfectly with the Curves philosophy: promoting the health of the whole woman. The opportunity for our members to give back to the New Richmond community promotes the spirit of giving.
