Thanksgiving is a time for all of us to reflect on the things that we, our families, and friends have to be thankful for and the blessings that we have received during the past year.
But the past few years have been especially difficult for so many in our community. Illnesses, disabilities, loss of jobs and many other factors have a great number of our families here at home looking for brighter days as the holiday season approaches.
As the need continues to grow, straining the resources of families, companies, and organizations many of our neighbors and friends may find an empty table on Thanksgiving for many of our neighbors and their families.
But there is something that we can do together to provide a memorable Thanksgiving for thousands this year.
By joining Eblen Charities, NBA All Star and NASCAR Analyst Brad Daugherty, Ingles Markets, and the Asheville Radio Group, you can share what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving with those who are less fortunate. All it takes is a simple donation of $1, $5, $10 or more, and you can brighten up the holidays for our families.
Our goal is to give 1,000 turkeys to those in need during these difficult times. Ingles Markets is kindly again partnering with us by assisting with donations and providing additional turkeys at $10 each.
