Cheyenne's annual Day of Giving is slated for May 12 at the Kiwanis Community House in Lions Park.

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 and follow the directions to register as a potential bone marrow donor.
  • Register as a potential organ/tissue donor with Donate Life Wyoming.
