Eblen Charities Coat Giveaway Thanks to a very generous community, we collected more than 1,000 coats and winter items at the Coat Drive last spring.  These items were given out at the Eblen Charities Coat Distribution last October. 

Thank you 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

Due to limited space, we are currently not accepting coat donations.

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.

Prom Dress Express provides donated gently used and new prom dresses, shoes, and 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.  This year’s giveaway will be on Saturday, March 25 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and on Wednesday, March 29 from Noon until 4:30 PM at 52 Westgate Parkway between the Eblen office and Earth Fare.

Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of people throughout our community and  iHeartMedia, hundreds of dresses have been given over the years to girls who may not have otherwise been able to afford one.  New and gently used dresses may be dropped at the Eblen office between 9:00 and 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
