This Month at Eblen
Christ School Group

Christ School Greenies have been long time supporters of Eblen Charities. They are always there to help when we are in need of volunteers. This year for their annual Day of Service, which lines up with the September 11 National Day of Service, fourteen young men helped move us move into a new space for the Eblen Charities Coat Distribution and Saint Nicholas Project/Ingles Toy Store. We are so thankful for their hard work and dedication to Eblen.

We love their motto: "Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile." - Albert Einstein
Annual Pumpkin Fundraiser!

October at Eblen means BOOsters and Pumpkins! These friendly ghosts and pumpkins are often seen around town, hanging in the halls at local schools, and decorating walls at local Ingles Markets, Bojangles, and other area businesses. The whole month of October you can support the Eblen Charities Pumpkin Fundraiser at Ingles Markets across Buncombe County by purchasing at the checkout or through area students or by texting the word PUMPKIN to 345345 ($5.00 min). Thank you for helping us serve our neighbors in need!

Local businesses are invited to help support the BOOsters and Pumpkin Fundraiser. For information on how you can help, contact Amanda Putnam at aputnam@eblencharities.org
