DeKALB – The Stage Coach Players will collect gifts for the Angel Tree sponsored by the DeKalb Salvation Army and Elder Care Services.

The gift collection and tag distribution will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Nov. 28, Dec. 5 and Dec. 12 at the Stage Coach Theatre, 126 S. Fifth St., DeKalb, according to a news release.

Participants can visit the theater, pick up a tag, and return the tag with a new, unwrapped gift or toy. The gifts will be given to children, older adults, and adults with disabilities. A U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots box is also available.

The Stage Coach Players Outreach Committee will be in the back of the theater to welcome and thank donors.
