The Manger Christmas Gifts

Donate Now

The Manger is our annual Christmas program for eligible neighbors. With the generosity of our local community donating new items ($35 or less for infants to seniors), and with the help from teams of volunteers, a “store-like” environment is created just for these families to choose their own gifts.
