Last year, volunteers gave over 4700 hours of service to Eblen Charities! That would be equivalent to $140,824.90 in payroll dollars and and a major savings to Eblen! We could not serve the thousands of people without the help of our faithful volunteers who assist with fundraising events like the annual golf tournament and the Spring coat drive, answering phones, filing, warehouse organization and special assistance programs like the St Nicholas project and Tools for Schools. There are many ways YOU can be apart of the mission of Eblen Charities.  


I started volunteering at events such as the St. Nicholas Toy Store, Tools for Schools, Turkey Give-Away and other fundraising events like the golf tournament and the Ingles FanZone at the SoCon Tournament.  During COVID in 2020, I was asked to answer phones since the office was closed to clients.  When friends ask me why I support Eblen, I tell that when I retired, I looked for a non-profit that I felt was closest to the Asheville/Buncombe community with the shortest distance between those that need help and those that can help.  I continue to be amazed at how much good work is done by such a small group of dedicated staff.” Susie Wheelis, Eblen Volunteer
