Tools for Schools & Ingles Pharmacy Vaccination Project

The 14th annual Ingles Tools for Schools Supply Drive was held on Wednesday August 10th at the Ingles at 153 Smokey Park Hwy in partnership with Ingles Markets, WLOS, iHeartMedia Asheville, and the Asheville Citizen-Times. 

Many students in our area went back to school year prepared because of the generosity of our community.  All school supplies donated helped  local children receive school supplies needed to have a successful start.

Ingles Pharmacy and Eblen Charities Immunization Project/Tools for Schools Distribution will be held Wednesday, August 24 9am-6pm

Don’t miss the sixth annual Ingles Pharmacy and Eblen Charities Immunization Project! Our community partners have teamed up once again to benefit area children who are uninsured or underinsured. The Immunization Project will provide access to free vaccines that are required for children who will go into Kindergarten, seventh, or 12th grade next year. *A meningitis booster is now required for all 12th grade students. If your rising first or eighth grader has not received these immunizations due to COVID disruptions last year, they are welcome to attend this clinic.
This event coincides with the school supply distribution on Wednesday, August 24 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Professionals will be on-site to provide health screenings and access to life-saving vaccines.
*Eblen Charities will require an appointment for anyone in need of school supplies in order to maintain COVID best practices.
