The Cheyenne Day of Giving works to help low- to moderate-income residents, as well as patients of any income range, who need blood donations, a bone marrow transplant, and an organ/tissue donation. Day of Giving also acts as a safety net for local agencies year-round to purchase items needed by clients but not donated by the public.
