KELSEYVILLE – Curves of Kelseyville raised more than 1,200 pounds of food from fundraising efforts in their local community to benefit Trinity Food Pantry.

The fundraising efforts took place from March 1 to March 31. They collected more than 1,200 pounds of food and household supplies.

"While we work to improve the lives of the women in the Kelseyville area through Curves, we also feel it is important to reach out to others in our community," said Shelly Puntillo, owner of Curves of Kelseyville. "It’s apparent to us that Trinity Food Pantry cares about the lives and the health of the people in our community. We are proud to be able to partner with them to help the Kelseyville area."

According to Puntillo, one of Curves of Kelseyville’s goals is to foster community involvement through charitable efforts.

"Curves has always been dedicated to improving someone’s life – through weight loss or a charitable initiative. It’s exciting to be able to give both to the Kelseyville community," said Puntillo.

Curves’ exercise program consists of 30 minutes of exercise three times a week, during which participants work all major muscle groups and receive a great cardio workout. It includes all five components of a complete exercise program: warm-up, strength training, cardio, cool down, and stretching.

For more information on Curves’ donation efforts, or to become a member contact Shelly Puntillo at 707-279-1679.

LAKEPORT – During the California Teachers Association (CTA) State Council Meeting on March 22, hundreds of members donated money to help a fellow member in need.

A Lakeport Unified Classified Employees Association (LUCEA) member’s husband passed away on March 19 due to complications of pneumonia.

This member, a cafeteria cook, was not prepared for this unexpected death and had no life insurance.

Her union brothers and sisters opened their wallets and donated more than $3,000 to help her and her family through this difficult time.

LUCEA President Doreen McGuire-Grigg contacted CTA Board of Director Larry Allen for help during this crisis.

Allen was granted permission from CTA President David A. Sanchez and the state council members to “pass the hat” during their session on Sunday afternoon.

These teachers and education support professional (ESP) members, who are struggling with lay-offs and difficult economic times, have proven that when hard times hit, they step up to make the difference. They work hard. They give of themselves to children and their communities, all in the midst of budget reductions, losses of jobs and losses of homes. Many of these members work two jobs to make ends meet.

Lakeport CTA ESP leadership delivered the donation to the member who was overwhelmed that CTA members who did not know the family were so generous.

The Lakeport Unified Classified Employees Association is an affiliate of CTA, which is affiliated with the 2.7 million-member National Education Association.
