Eblen Charities Fall Coat Drive

Thanks to a very generous community, we collected more than 1,000 coats and winter items!  These items will be given away at the Eblen Charities Coat Distribution on Monday, October 25 and Tuesday, October 26, at the space next door to the Eblen Charities office, 52 Westgate Parkway. 

Due to space limitations and ongoing COVID restrictions, we will be regulating the number of shoppers allowed inside. Please know you may be asked to wait in your car to enter as a courtesy to our shopping center neighbors.

*Masks will be required to enter. Please bring your own mask.

Thanks to our Partners: Ingles Markets, WLOS, iHeartRadio Asheville, Star 104.3, 99.9 KISS Country, WWNC 570 News, Rock 105.1, 97.7 The Brew, The New ESPN Asheville, ALT 101.1

If you have coats or winter items that you would like to donate, and cannot did not make it to the drive, they can be dropped off at the Eblen Charities office at 50 Westgate Parkway, Asheville, 28806. Please come around to the back door and ring the doorbell.  

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, and Asheville Cleaners, hundreds of dresses have been given over the years to girls who may not have otherwise been able to afford one.  

Special Note: Due to COVID-19, we will be unable to hold Operation Prom Dress, however appointments can be made for those needing prom attire.  Please contact Susan Riddle at Eblen Charities at 828-255-3066 ext.21 or via email at [email protected]
