Poulsbo-area Curves to host food drive for local food banks

Curves is encouraging women in the local area to show their philanthropic strength by participating in the annual Curves Food Drive. Throughout March, Curves locations in the area will collect non-perishable items and monetary donations for food banks in the local area. The goal, according to Curves Founder Diane Heavin, is for the community to come together to help families in need.

Members who donate a bag of groceries or make a minimum donation of $30 during the month of March will receive a reusable Curves grocery freezer bag for free. Between March 8 through 20, Curves will waive the membership fee for non-members who make a minimum donation of $30.

Curves locations in the area will be participating in a company-wide contest for the most food drive donations collected by Curves locations across the nation. Winners will receive one of several cash prizes to be donated to their local food bank.
