Eblen Charities 2021 Pumpkin Event

Posted on 10/05/2021








Dear Students and Parents,

It’s that time of year again!  Beginning Friday, October 8th, and all following Fridays until November 5th, A. C. Reynolds Middle School will be collecting donations for the Eblen Charities Annual Pumpkin Event.  The money collected goes to the Eblen Foundation to provide aid and assistance for children and families in Western North Carolina who suffer from the effects of illness and disabilities.  Eblen has helped many families in our area with eyeglasses, medication, clothes, food, and other necessities.  It is a charity that truly loves and cares about children and their families.

For those of you not familiar with this pumpkin event, here is what it’s all about:

  • For every $1.00 your child turns in, they will receive a paper pumpkin in their name.
  • The top selling student in the school will receive a $10.00 gift certificate from Regal Biltmore Grand Cinemas.
  • The top selling class will receive a Pizza & Pepsi Party.
  • Cash and checks are acceptable – Make checks payable to A. C. Reynolds Middle School

We will be doing several fun activities on each Friday during this event:

Friday, October 8th: “Team Spirit Day” – Bring $1.00 to your homeroom teacher and wear your favorite sports team attire!

Friday, October 15th: “Mismatched Day” – Bring $1.00 to your homeroom teacher and wear your best mismatched outfit!
