Ingles Tools for Schools Supply Drive & Distribution through
Eblen Charities
Thanks to everyone who joined us this year for the 13th annual Ingles Tools for Schools drive and distribution day. With the help of the Eblen Tools for Schools committee and volunteers, hundreds of students received the school supplies they needed to start the school year.
This outreach project could not be done without the support of our partners, sponsors, donors and volunteers who give generously and put in many hours of work to ensure students have what they need.

Volunteers helped unload the truck of supplies, sorted and filled book bags with paper, pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, erasers, folders, notebooks and more! Together we helped nearly 700 children get school supplies, easing the financial burden on the family, helping teachers and helping the children feel confident and happy to start school!
Thanks to Ingles Pharmacy and the Buncombe County Health Department for providing immunizations for children starting kindergarten, 7th and 12th grades, as well as administering flu shots, and wellness checkups during the fifth annual Ingles Pharmacy/ Eblen Immunization Project.
Special thanks to our partners Ingles Markets, WLOS, iHeartradio, and the Asheville Citizen-Times for making the Ingles Tools for School Supply Drive a success. Thanks to our Eblen sponsors Great Beginnings Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics and Two Men and a Truck and to local businesses, Kimmel and Associates, Wilson Art, and the Shag Club of Asheville for their donations.
