|Curves participating in food drive|
Curves International, including locations in Aurora and Grand Island, is attempting to collect 100,000 donations during its “Feed the Need” food drive, which continues through March 23.
Clubs are asking members to donate bags of nonperishable food or cash to support their local food bank. In addition, Curves clubs in the area will waive the joining fee for new members who bring in a bag of nonperishable food or donate $30 to their local food bank during the food drive.
When combined donations from all Curves clubs reach 100,000 donations, Curves International will donate 10 percent of March 2013 profits to Blessings in a Backpack, a nonprofit organization that ensures that impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends throughout the school year.
Curves of Aurora is located at 1125 12th St.
