Curves of Sleepy Eye held a membership drive in March offering one free month of membership for each person who donated a bag of groceries. While membership did grow some during that time, owner Deb Moldaschel said the over 413 pounds of groceries collected and $115 in monetary donations was donated in large part by the generosity of current members.
