CHEYENNE – Each May for 14 years, Cheyenne Day of Giving has hosted a community event to help those in great need in our community. This spring, we cannot get together in person for a full Day of Giving as was planned for May 8. Due to COVID-19, we have had to postpone our in-person event, but area businesses, civic groups, congregations, and individuals can still come together ONLINE as we work to help our neighbors who are struggling more than ever during this hard time. It will be a time to prove our motto, “Together we can do so much!”
We invite everyone to join the Virtual Cheyenne Day of Giving by donating on our website or Facebook page. We have posted a list of the 17 agencies we help as well as contact information, top three needs, and website for each. Day of Giving will appreciate donations of any size and will do the shopping for those who would like to help but would rather not shop themselves. One hundred percent of every donation will go to purchase and deliver the items listed for each agency. We also welcome donations mailed to Day of Giving at P O Box 192, Cheyenne, WY 82003.
As with each previous Day of Giving event, we will be focusing on making a difference for thousands of our neighbors in need!
