Curves fundraising for LASS
There’s a table full of magazines for sale at Curves. The cost is $2 or 3 for $5. All the proceeds are going to the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS).
“My daughter, Ashley organized this,” says Curves manager Cerran Holecz. “She is always trying to raise money for causes and charities she loves and believes in.”
Right now they have mostly fitness magazines, cooking, diabetic and lots of yoga magazines. They are happy to take magazines if anyone wants to donate some but they have a few general guidelines.
“They have to be fairly new, 2018/2019 and we’d like to keep it to kind of healthy kinds of things — exercising, eating right, cooking…” says Cerran.
She says Curves is happy to be a part of this fundraiser.
“We are part of the community. We’re not just about empowering women — we’re about empowering children and the people in our community.”
This fundraiser is going all through February.
Curves is located at 30 Lakeshore Dr. NW, across from Lordco.
