Eblen Charities Newsletter: Nov. 30, 2021
Facebook Match!

⭐Today is #GivingTuesday ⭐ and facebook is matching donations starting at 8am! If you would like to donate please visit the facebook fundraiser link provided in order to have your donation matched. All donations will go toward purchasing toys for the Ingles Toy Store to benefit the Eblen Charities Saint Nicholas Project! Families will "shop" and pick special gifts for their children at no charge.
The $30 for the 30th End-Year Event has Officially Begun!
Join us as we begin to celebrate 30 years of serving our wonderful community.

From now until the end of the year we invite you to join us as we hope to make up for lost events due to covid and close out our 30th year by simply sharing the story of Eblen Charities while gathering donations of $30 (or more) along the way.

A 30th Anniversary short-doc is now available to view and share through our facebook-watch, featuring Eblen stories as told through our staff and volunteers as we answer the question everyone first asks: "What does Eblen Charities do?"

If you, your business, or group is interested in adding something special of your own for our 30th as part of our celebration, please contact Susan Riddle: sriddle@eblencharities.org
Due to the generosity of a long-time friend, our first $10,000 in donations will be matched! Please help us take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
