Curves food drive kicks off in April

By on April 4, 2011

ELBURN—During the month of April, Curves gym in Elburn will participate in the annual Curves food drive to collect non-perishable food and cash donations.

“Our goal is to top the donation that we made last year,” said Curves Founder Diane Heavin. “This is a great opportunity for the members of our Curves community to help strengthen the Elburn-area community, too. Everything that our members donate at their local clubs 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 that have entered the contest.

“The past few years have been difficult for many families,” Heavin said. “Curves annual food drive is one way that everyone in the Elburn area can make a real difference for a community family that is struggling. We encourage everyone to make a cash donation or drop off a bag of non-perishable food items in April.”
