 Gift Selection Instructions

Each year the Ware Institute selects agencies with a wide range of clients including children, adults, and seniors. 

  • Each tab in the Google spreadsheet is a different agency. Select the tab for the agency you wish to purchase gifts to view the wish list.
  • When you decide which gift(s) you want to purchase, 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 for one person if you choose. If there are several items on the list please indicate in the next column what items (or ALL if you are purchasing all the items) requested for that person. 
  • When purchasing books or toys, please choose age-appropriate items and toys that won't be a choking hazard for younger children.

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