Area Curves centers plan food drive

February 29, 2008

Curves of Hagerstown, Williamsport and Clear Spring will be participating in the Curves Food Drive to benefit local food banks.

Last year, the food drive collected almost 11 million pounds of food for communities all over the world. This year, Curves has set a goal to collect 15 million pounds.

To celebrate the generosity of the community, Curves is offering a discounted service fee of $30 for any new member who brings in a bag of nonperishable groceries and commits to a 12-month membership between March 3 and 15. Last year, a quarter of a million new members joined Curves during the food drive.

Others wishing to donate may drop off nonperishable food items at Curves Monday through Friday during business hours through the month of March.

This year's food drive includes a twist: a weekly theme that gives people fun options and helps them pick healthy foods to donate. The schedule includes: Week 1-Empty Your Pantry of Healthy Staples; Week 2: Foods From Around the World; Week 3: Souper Suppers; Week 4: Family Friendly items including healthy snacks for kids and baby necessities.

"The Curves Food Drive promotion is always exciting," said Julie Doyle, the owner of the Curves in Hagers-town, Williamsport and Clear Spring. "We have a chance to help so many people at a time when the food banks are lowest. It's a win-win situation for everyone, and we're very proud to participate."
