Creating a basket

We really need your support in creating baskets for the auction this year. We know that it will be more of a challenge given many are working remotely and getting a basket together can be challenging under normal circumstances. We strongly recommend getting as early start as possible! Make sure to start coordinating a collective "theme" for your basket.

Ways to coordinate your basket building

  • Create a safe (monitored) centralized drop-off location near your office where people from your group can put the parts of your basket when they have time. You may want to clearly display the theme on a flyer/poster at the drop-off. You can list possible items that could be purchased as part of the basket.
  • Go virtual! It may be easier for your group to purchase basket parts separately and have them shipped directly to you to build the basket. You could create an Amazon Basket Wish List of possible items. Then send the link for the Basket Wish List to your group. They can purchase the items and it will be shipped to you!
