Due to COVID-19, the annual spring coat drive will move to summer, 2021. Look for details soon!
Shoes and Clothing Vouchers are available to children in our community who are in need of shoes and clothing. The vouchers are made at the request of the child’s school counselor.
Operation Prom Dress helps provide donated gently used and new prom dresses, shoes, jewelry to high school students for prom and military balls at no cost. For many young women this event will never happen for one very simple reason – the price of the dress they would wear to their formal is just out of reach.
Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of people throughout our community, iHeartMedia, 99.9 Kiss Country, Star 104.3, and Asheville Cleaners, many girls who thought they may be sitting at home will now be joining their friends and classmates on prom night.
If you know of any young lady in need of a prom dress, or have one you would like to donate, please contact Susan Riddle at Eblen Charities at 828-255-3066 ext.21 or via email at [email protected]
