Curves annual food drive brings in 2,000 pounds

Focusing on the idea that women are ‘Stronger Together,’ members of Curves in Jonesborough joined together during the last several weeks to gather donations for local food banks.
For over a decade, the Curves community has participated in drives to help stock the shelves of local food banks. The Jonesborough club has been participating since it opened seven years ago.
This year marks the Jonesborough club’s “best year ever,” according to Tammy Edwards, manager of the business.
“We have collected around 2,000 pounds of groceries,” Edwards said. “Together, we can help families in need, have a great month in our clubs, and continue to emphasize our ‘Stronger Together’ message.”
The club is donating the collected groceries to the Washington County School System, which will then distribute the food to needy families in the area.
“The Curves Food Drive is a great way to help those in need and at the same time it helped over 40 new members join with no down payment, by donating a bag of groceries,” Edwards said. “Our existing members took advantage of the opportunity to give back to their community and they earned a reusable Curves grocery bag.”
