Participate in Tools for Schools!
HOW CAN YOU HELP STUDENTS TODAY?
Thursday August 8th, join News 13, Clear Channel, Ingles & Eblen Charities in Tools for Schools, a day long local school supply drive in our community.
With budget cuts looming the need is just as great, if not greater, heading into the new school year. We encourage you to donate where you live or work. You can feel good knowing the school supplies you donate on August 8th will go to a child in your community!
As you shop for groceries or school supplies for your own children in the coming days, pick up some extras and take them to the following Ingles location, where volunteers will be standing by on Thursday, August 8th:
