Each angel tag includes a gift to be purchased on the front and the directions on the back. Adult gifts are always in demand at The Manger, so many of our gift tags are for adults. The suggested gift price is $35, as this will be their main Christmas gift. You are invited to take as many tags as you want. Please return your unwrapped gifts to the Angel Tree in Wilson Hall by noon December 9.
