Campus Holiday Gift Drive 

                 Wednesday, November 8- Friday, December 8, 2017

The annual F&M campus holiday gift drive is celebrating  30 YEARS of  giving this year!  The drive has been an F&M tradition since 1987. 

 
THANK YOU for  taking  part in this wonderful tradition and help make someone's holiday a bit brighter this year! 

 

Gift Selection Instructions
  • Each agency has its own tab in the spreadsheet. Click on the tab for the agency you wish to purchase gifts.
  • Enter your name (or if a department is purchasing for a group, you can enter the department) and an extension to call if Sandi has questions about your selection.
  • Multiple people (or a department) can be added to purchase items in a wish list for one person, if you choose. If there are several items on the list just indicate in the next column what items you are purchasing. If you need to make a column larger, feel free to do so in order to accommodate multiple names. 

The button link below takes you to a spreadsheet with the gift wishes listed for each agency.    Please be a careful editor!
