Curves International recently announced its 15th annual food drive, “Feed the Need,” that challenges Curves’ club members in the U.S. and Canada to meet a goal of 100,000 donations during the two-week period of March 11-23.
Each club, including the Curves in Avon, is asking its members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash to support their community food bank.
In addition, the Curves club in the Avon area 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 two-week period.
When combined donations from all Curves clubs reach the goal of 100,000 donations, Curves International will donate 10 percent of 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.
Since its inception, the total contributions to local food banks from the annual Curves Food Drive exceed 75,000,000 pounds of food.
For more information about Curves and the 2013 Curves Food Drive, call the Avon club at 209-9500 or e-mail to 9BJTXZIO@curvesmail.com. The Curves of Avon is at 9719 E. U.S. 36.
