Curves wants to help the hungry

An Albany business that focuses on helping people lose weight is hoping to collect more than a ton of food next month. 

Curves owner Marie Kreiser says she'll spend the next month raising awareness, money and food for the Foodbank of Southwest Georgia.

She knows there is a desperate need for people to be able to provide nutritious meals for their families but the current economy coupled with higher food prices can make that hard to do.

"Especially in Albany, Georgia. It's something that's very close to my because I've worked with inner city ministries and I just know of the need that's out there," said Kreiser.

Kreiser will camp out for the cause all next week next to her shop on Ledo Rd. She did the same last year. You can stop and drop off your donation to her there.

If you donate during the first two weeks of the drive, you can join Curves at a promotional rate.
