Coats and Winter Gear are collected at the WLOS Spring Clean Coat Drive annual event and distributed to people in need through Eblen Charities.
Special Note: Due to COVID-19, the WLOS Spring Clean Coat Drive will move to summer, 2021. If you have coats or winter items that you would like to donate, 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]
