Harling says that as part of this effort, Curves of Anchorage will be
participating in a company-wide contest for the most food drive donations

Curves locations collectively donate millions of pounds of food to feed
the hungry.

"We hope women in the Anchorage area will come together and participate in
this initiative," added Harling. "Even if you’re not thinking about
joining a gym, you can still drop off your donations. There are so many
families – right here in our own community – who need our help."
