Curves Food Drive brings in 2370.5 Pounds Locally

Mary and Martha Ministries Benefits from Lamar Member Efforts

Lamar, CO (Grassroots Newswire) 5/5/11 — Curves, the world’s largest fitness franchisor, today announced that the 2011 13th Annual Food Drive brought in 2370.5 pounds in Lamar which will benefit Lamar’s Mary and Martha Ministries. Worldwide, Curves members have donated more than 61 million pounds of food since 2004.

Renee Beebe, Lamar Curves franchise owner says, “Our members have generous hearts. So, it’s no surprise to me that they rallied behind the food drive.” she explains, “We set a goal of collecting 2000 pounds of food and we exceeded that goal! I am really proud of our ladies.”

But the food donations weren’t just from the Lamar Curves members. Non-members also brought in bags of groceries in exchange for an opportunity to join Curves with a waived service fee. It’s notable that in these tough economic times, thousands of women took advantage of this opportunity to help themselves become healthier while contributing to the needs of their community’s less fortunate residents. Last month’s Food Drive accounted for 10 new memberships at the Lamar Curves.

“Curves and our members are delighted to help our community,” said Beebe. “The Food Drive is an excellent program that fits perfectly with the Curves philosophy: promoting the health of the whole woman. The opportunity for our members to give back to the Lamar community promotes the spirit of giving.”
