Cheyenne Day of Giving 2023 Is Scheduled for May 12
A youth event is also slated for the afternoon of May 11.
The history of the Day of Giving starts with event founder Greta Morrow, a Cheyenne resident, and former teacher, who was diagnosed with stage IV leukemia in 1995.
That led to the first-ever Day of Giving, and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
According to the Day of Giving website, numerous items are being sought for this year's event;
- 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.
- Make a cash donation to our year-round effort.
- Drop off unused prescription medications for donation to the Wyoming Medication Donation Program.
- Donate gently used durable medical equipment to GoodHealthwill for use by clients who need such items and cannot afford them on their own.
- Donate used prescription eyeglasses and hearing aids to the Lions Club.
- Give blood to help Vitalant.
- If you are 18-44 years old and in overall good health, go to bethematch.org and follow the directions to register as a potential bone marrow donor.
- Register as a potential organ/tissue donor with Donate Life Wyoming.
