Holidays with Heroes Drive is Coming Up Saturday
This weekend, Townsquare Media is teaming with the Cheyenne Police and Fire Departments for the annual “Holidays with Heroes” Drive. Saturday, from 10 am to 3 pm, we’ll be collecting gifts for needy families at the Walgreens on 1501 Dell Range Boulevard.
Unlike our recent Toys For Tots campaign, which is geared towards younger children, Holidays with Heroes provides gifts and presents for people of all ages, particularly “tweens”, teenagers and adults.
The project is the brain child of Cheyenne Police Officer Jose Ruiz. Ruiz grew up in an underprivileged family. One year, a police officer knocked on his door with a bag full of Christmas gifts. Now, Ruiz is returning the favor, with the help of local law enforcement agencies, first responders and firefighters.
