The Folsom Lake Kiwanis Club and Curves for Women in Orangevale have teamed up to collect food, clothing, back to school items and household furnishings for the Twin Lakes Food Bank. It was the idea of Bea Buder, Kiwanis Club member and attendee at Curves, who decided that the partnership would be good for all three organizations. Muriel Brounstein, Chair of the Kiwanis Club project, has been a long time supporter of the Twin Lakes Food Bank. "Kathy Boone, their executive director, is so dedicated and does such a wonderful job. There is more need in the community now than ever before because of the worsening economy and higher unemployment," Buder said. "Kiwanis is a world-wide organization dedicated to service in their communities. It seemed like a perfect match." Orangevale Curves owner Pat Dayton thought many of her patrons would be eager to help those less fortunate, so she set up a collection site at her Madison Avenue location. Kiwanis Club members distribute fliers and collect items in their neighborhoods and deliver them to the Food Bank.

Curves, located at 9372 Madison Avenue, Suite #5, in Orangevale may be reached at 987-7860.
