Hoops Against Hunger
at Ingles SoCon Basketball Championships
& The Hoops Against Hunger Hotel Challenge
Eblen Charities is launching its Hoops Against Hunger campaign, now in its 8th year, in partnership with the Ingles Southern Conference Basketball Championships this March 4-7 at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center in downtown Asheville, NC.
Financial donations and easy-to-prepare, kid-friendly food items will be collected in the lobbies of partner Asheville hotels hosting the SoCon basketball teams, between now and the end of the tournament. Donations can be made by texting “HOOPS” to 345345 or by visiting eblencharities.org.
One out of five children in our community relies on the free and reduced lunch program for healthy food. The food collected through our Hoops Against Hunger program will go to local schools and students who may not have a source of food over their spring break.
