The Manger Christmas Gifts

Donation Goal For This Project is $150,000
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.

General Information

The Manger Program in Franklin is Dec. 13 – 16 at Church of the City, 828 Murfreesboro Road. This year, the Manger will also be set up in Fairview on Saturday, Dec. 16, at Fairview First Baptist Church, 7310 Overby Road.

Session times are 1 pm and 6 pm each day EXCEPT Saturday, Dec. 16, when it’s 9 am and 1 pm. Doors will open an hour before shopping begins.

How to Register

Registration begins on Oct. 1 and continues through Nov. 30 from Monday through Friday at both GraceWorks locations between 10 am and 2 pm. As some of the registration process has changed, we ask all who wish to register to call the Manger Hotline at (615) 794-9055 extension 165 and listen to the recording.
