Every community does what it can to take care of those in need. But Cheyenne takes a step above and beyond each year for it’s Day Of Giving
It all began with one woman and a bone marrow transplant. That prompted her to think of others in need and how many different ways people might need help.
Cheyenne’s Day Of Giving has grown into a large non-profit organization, led by Cheyenne churches, business and community groups. While they gather items for the needed year-round, once a year they set up an outdoor event so the entire city can show up and our their hearts out.
The 12th Annual Cheyenne Day of Giving is Friday, May 12, 2017 at the Cheyenne Community House.
Here are just a few of the ways you can help:
Drop off non-perishable food, personal care items, and craft items to be sorted and donated to these local charities according to their wish lists: Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne, Comea House, Home Away From Home, Family Promise of Cheyenne, Magic City Enterprises, Needs, St. Joseph’s Food Pantry, Salvation Army, Safehouse Services, Unaccompanied Student Initiative, and Wyoming Coalition for the Homeless.
Donate food items such as pasta, peanut butter, cereal, boxed meals, and canned goods.
Donate personal care items such as regular and trial-size shampoo, conditioner, and lotion; razors, toothbrushes and toothpaste, bar soap, deodorant, and diapers.
Donate craft items such as scrapbooking supplies, stamps, ink, paper, markers, beads, and kits.
Drop off unused prescription medications for donation to the Wyoming Medication Donation Program.
Donate gently used durable medical equipment to Wyoming Independent Living for use by clients who need such items and cannot afford them on their own.
