13th Annual Bay View Curves Food Drive Kicks Off In April

April 1, 2011

13th Annual Curves Food Drive Kicks Off in April: Curves of Bay View offers incentives to members and the community to donate food and cash to benefit local food bank

 

During the month of April, Curves of Bay View will participate in the 13th Annual Curves Food Drive to collect non-perishable food and cash donations to benefit the food banks at the Bay View Community Center and Project Concern (Cudahy). Current members who make a $30 donation or an equivalent donation of food are eligible to receive a Curves reusable Food Drive grocery bag. And, in April, Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who donate a bag of non-perishable food or make a minimum donation of $30.

 

"Our goal is to top the donation that we made last year," said a Curves of Bay View staff member. "This is a great opportunity for the members of our Curves community to help strengthen the Bay View community, too. Everything that our members donate at our club will benefit local families in need."

 

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 with the most food collected, clubs who beat their 2010 donation level by the largest amount and 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 U.S. and Canada since 2004.

 

This year’s Food Drive will get off to a strong start when Curves International founders Gary and Diane Heavin are featured on ABC Television’s inspirational new show, Secret Millionaire, airing Sunday, April 3 at 8/7c. The Curves founders’ moving episode will help Curves members understand how the Curves Food Drive is the perfect opportunity for each of them to give back to their own communities.

 

"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 Bay View area can make a real difference for a local family that 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."
