“The Curves food drive promotion is always exciting,” said Ronald Morrill, the owner of the Lewiston and Auburn clubs. “We have a chance to help so many people at a time when the food banks are lowest, while we assist more women in reaching their fitness and weight loss goals. It’s a win-win situation for everyone, and we are very proud to participate.”
