Spring Tabernacle toy give-away Friday

December 12, 2013

Spring Tabernacle, located at 1208 Wright St., will hold its 18th annual Christmas gift give-away beginning at 9 a.m. Friday and continuing for as long as toys and other gifts last.

Parents of children ages 2 to 12 may receive up to four gifts per child during the event, Minister Mona Lue Tonn said.

For more information on the give-away, contact Tonn at 263-0544.
