Charity Needs Volunteers – Eblen Charities Asheville NC
Asheville, North Carolina
Eblen Charities is a victim of its own success. What a great story, a charity that provides such important services to its community that it needs more volunteers. While many struggle to find funding for their various charitable activities Eblen is struggling to find volunteers to help organize and deliver much needed assistance to those struggling to make ends meet.
The Eblen Charities provides help to thousands upon thousands of families each year with medical and emergency assistance.
From the Eblen Charities Website:
“Founded in 1991 in Asheville, NC by Joe Eblen, President of the Biltmore Oil Company, the Eblen Charities has become one of North Carolina’s most innovative and effective social enterprises. Within its first decade, the Eblen Charities has grown from assisting 300 families with one program during its first year to assisting tens of thousands of families with more than 70 programs yearly throughout western North Carolina.”
The charity offers many different programs to help those who need a little extra. One of their programs helps with heating oil while another collects Christmas gifts for families that can’t quite afford them.
Eblen Charities needs volunteers, primarily office help and help with organizing volunteer tasks. You can contact Eblen:
