FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) February 13, 2009 -- During the month of March, local Curves locations will participate in the 11th Annual Curves Food Drive to benefit local food banks. Collectively, over the past five years, nearly 50 million pounds of food were distributed to local communities all over the world through the Curves Food Drive.
Curves of Maryland, DC, and Virginia are also giving back to the community by waiving its normal service fee for any new member who brings in a bag of non-perishable groceries and joins between March 9th and March 28th. This promotion will help the women of the MidAtlantic Region manage their weight and their wallets by joining Curves for free, while also helping feed hungry people in the community.
"The Curves Food Drive is always exciting," said Katy Bauer,
the owner of clubs in Gaithersburg &
Olney, MD. "We have a chance to help so many people at a time when the
food banks are lowest. Especially during these uncertain times, this
food is needed more than ever. It’s a win-win situation for everyone,
and we’re very proud to participate."
Others wishing to donate may drop off non-perishable food items at Curves Monday through Friday during business hours throughout the month of March. For more information, please your local Curves location by calling 1-800-Curves30 or by visiting www.MidAtlanticCurves.com.
