Local food drive gains 1006 pounds
Curves, the world's largest fitness franchisor, today announced that the 2007 Curves Food Drive brought in 1006 pounds in Niles which will benefit Alameda County's Food Bank. Around the world, Curves members donated nearly 11 million pounds of food to their local food banks.
This was Curves International's ninth food drive and Curves-Niles District's third time to participate. Every year in March, women have the opportunity to donate a bag of groceries in lieu of paying the Curves membership fee. Hundreds of thousands of women take advantage of this opportunity to help themselves become healthier while contributing to the needs of their community's less fortunate residents.
In the past decade, Curves franchises have collected and distributed more than 50 million pounds of food to local food banks throughout the world. For more information, contact www.curves.com.
