Tools for Schools

Eblen Charities distributes school supplies to more than 1,400 children thanks to the the Ingles Tools for School Supply Drive and partnerships with Ingles Markets, WLOS, Asheville Citizen Times, and iHeartMedia. 


2020 Ingles Tools for Schools Supply Drive will be held on Wednesday, August 5th at the Ingles at 29 Tunnel Rd.  We will be on-site to collect donated school supplies from 6am-7pm.  Volunteers will be taking donations from vehicles, as donors will be asked to stay in their vehicles as we follow all social distancing and COVID-19 regulations.  Donors will also have the option to donate in an Ingles Market store two weeks leading up to the event, or on-line at

If you or your business would like to participate by collecting school supplies or raising funds through our new crowdfunding application, please contact Amanda Putnam at [email protected]
