KINDNESS IN ACTION - JULY 2024

As summer starts, our hearts and minds are already turning to the holidays. July brings a host of exciting events designed to raise funds, spread awareness, and collect toys for our beloved community!


Kicking off our festivities, join us on July 15th at our inaugural Football in July Tailgate party! You’ll get delicious food, drinks, games, and a live and silent auction. You’ll also get the chance to hear an inspiring story from one of our clients and meet our favorite celebrity, Brad Johnson! But that’s not all – Brad will also join us for our annual Celebrity Golf Tournament, presented by Wicked Weed Brewing, set against the stunning backdrop of the challenging Cliffs at Walnut Cove course.


On Saturday, July 20th, celebrate Christmas in July with our friends at the Smoky Mountain Toy Run. The funds raised from this joyful event will be used to purchase bicycles for local children, ensuring they have a magical holiday season come December.



These events are not just about fun – they carry a profound purpose. Every dollar raised stays within our community, helping to provide holiday gifts for children, preventing eviction and homelessness for our neighbors, and ensuring that they have fans to beat the heat, running water, and essential medications. We strive to offer compassion and support to our neighbors who are facing crises, with practical solutions that make a difference.

Here are just a few ways Eblen has been serving

our community lately. Every gift makes a difference in the life of someone in need. Your support allows Eblen to continue to assist families and individuals facing a crisis or hardship.

Thank YOU for making this possible!


  • A single mother of two, inherited a house from her deceased mother. She paid out of pocket for the funeral expenses while trying to catch up on multiple bills associated with the funeral and transfer of property. Eblen provided assistance with her water service and mortgage.


  • A married couple with four children in the home had the high costs of a car repair job and couldn’t pay for both the car repair and their rent. Eblen paid their back-due rent to avoid eviction and stabilize the family.


  • A mother of four has been unable to work since December 2023 due to a high risk pregnancy. Eblen helped her household maintain running water.
