Join Us For This Year’s St. Nicholas Project

The St. Nicholas Project is Eblen’s Most Popular Event

Don’t miss out on helping with this year’s Saint Nicholas Project. We began registering families who need help on October 1 and already have more than 1,000 children registered. Eblen Charities is one of the few local organization serving children at Christmas each year through the age of 18.

There are Several Opportunities to be Involved:

Host a Toy Drop-off Box

If your business, organization or school would like to be a site for toy collections, contact Tim Gwennap at 828-768-3536. We will get the boxes to you and schedule a time to pick them up throughout the month of December.

Help Staff the Ingles Toy Store

Volunteers are needed to staff the toy store which is open Monday through Friday from December 9 to December 23. If you would like to work a three hour shift in the store, contact Amanda Putnam at 828-707-0173.

Donate Toys or Make A Financial Contribution

Toy boxes are at numerous sites throughout our community and you are welcome to drop off toys at the Eblen Charities Waddell Client Service Center at 50 Westgate Parkway (in the Westgate Shopping Center) or at the Ingles Toy Store at 80 Westgate Parkway in the Westgate Shopping Center beginning December 7th.

Financial contributions are greatly appreciated. We use these funds to purchase toys that supplement those donated. Checks can be mailed to Eblen Charities at 50 Westgate Parkway, Asheville, NC 28806 or made online at
