Saint Nicholas Project

This year’s Ingles Magical Christmas Toy Drive will be held Thursday, Dec. 3 – Saturday, Dec 5 at the Ingles at 29 Tunnel Road. Drop off a new unwrapped toy, make a cash donation, or text TOYS to 345345.  Thank you to Ingles Markets, iHeartRadio, and WLOS!

The Saint Nicholas Project provides Christmas gifts, clothes, books and other items to children and families in our community who are struggling to provide Christmas for their children. 

 The Saint Nicholas Project is in Partnership with Ingles Markets, WLOS-TV, iHeartRadio, Asheville-Citizen Times, Great Beginnings Pediatric Dentistry, the Harley’s Owner’s Group, the Smoky Mountain Toy Run, Two Men and a Truck, and hundreds of other businesses and families.

Children from birth to 18, are registered beginning October 1st.  Toys are collected by businesses, organizations, and schools as well as through the Ingles Magical Christmas Toy Drive and the Smoky Mountain Toy Run and are distributed in the Ingles/Eblen Toy Store.  Parents who sign up are given an appointment to come back and shop during a two-week period the Ingles Toy Store is open.  This year parents are able to choose two gifts, stocking stuffers and a book for each child. For more information about how you can help, contact Amanda Putnam at [email protected] or visit

Look for the Saint Nicholas Project toy boxes located in businesses all over Buncombe County and in all Ingles Markets.  Toys are collected in businesses until December 14th or later.  If your business is collecting toys and not on this list, please contact Amanda Putnam at [email protected]

Toy donations can also be dropped off at the back door of the Eblen Charities office, 50 Westgate Parkway, Asheville, NC 28806 M-F, 9 a.m. -5 p.m.
