Select one or more tags, purchase the requested gift, and return the unwrapped gift with the tag attached by Monday, Dec. 9. Gifts can be placed in the container by the Giving Tree. The children’s department is also having its Annual Book Drive for the Foxboro Discretionary Fund. Please bring a new, unwrapped book for a child aged 0 to 12 years-old.
