Current members who make a $30 donation or an equivalent donation of food are eligible to receive a Curves reusable Food Drive grocery bag. From April 4 through 17, Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who donate a bag of non-perishable food or make a minimum donation of $30.
In addition to the food and monetary donations that each gym collects, Curves International is offering gyms the opportunity to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Prizes will be awarded to clubs that collect the most food and clubs that beat their 2010 donation level by the largest amount. Prizes will also be awarded to two randomly selected clubs drawn from all the clubs who enter the contest. Curves clubs have donated more than 61 million pounds of food in the United States and Canada since 2004.
“The past few years have been difficult for many families,” said Curves founder Diane Heavin. “Curves’ annual Food Drive is one way that everyone in the Antioch area can make a real difference for a local family who is struggling. We encourage everyone, not just our members or those who are thinking about joining our gym, to make a cash donation or drop off a bag of non-perishable food items in April.”
