Tools for Schools & Ingles Pharmacy Vaccination Project

Donate to Tools for Schools

Join us for the 13th annual Ingles Tools for Schools Supply Drive, Wednesday August 4th at the Ingles at 29 Tunnel Rd. (across Outback Steakhouse) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in partnership with Ingles Markets, WLOS, iHeartMedia Asheville, and the Asheville Citizen-Times. 
Eblen Charities is grateful to our partners, as well as community supporters, Great Beginnings Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics for supporting the Tools for Schools program. 
Students will be back in the classrooms this coming school year, and many will need your help to get the school supplies they need to start the school year successfully.  All school supplies donated will help local children in our community who receive school supplies through Eblen Charities.
