Curves shares giving spirit this Thanksgiving

Local women’s fitness center hosts turkey drive

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Traditionally, this is a time to collectively give thanks. Most celebrate this holiday by gathering for a meal with family and friends. The traditional meals vary from turkey and wild rice dressing in northern U.S. and Canada to turkey and cornbread dressing in the south. They are different traditions, with one commonality—turkey.

But not everyone will have a turkey. And the Curves of Cedar Springs wants to help by hosting a Give a Gobble event on November 24 and 25. During this event, the Cedar Springs Curves will waive the initial service fee for any new member who brings in either a turkey or a $30 contribution, all to be donated to North Kent Service Center and local church food pantries.

Curves owner Christine Holman says, “We chose this organization because, as a small community, we still have many families in need and this is just another time that we can showcase the need of area families. Our goal is to donate 50 turkeys and I think we can do it.”

The Give a Gobble event will be a time for long-term members and new members alike to have fun, get to know each other and help the community simultaneously. The festivities will include recipe exchanges, seminars on healthy eating during the holidays and opportunities for fresh turkeys.

“Give a Gobble is just a great way for us to get into the giving spirit and to also help those in need at the same time,” said Holman.

To participate in the Cedar Springs Curves Give a Gobble, contact Christine Holman at 616-696-1689.
