We are a non-profit organization, led by Cheyenne congregations and supported by local business and community groups. Our focus is on providing an opportunity for people in the Cheyenne area to come together in an effort to help the sick and the economically disadvantaged.
When is the Cheyenne Day of Giving?
The high point of our year-round efforts is a one-day event at the Kiwanis Community House in Lions Park on the Friday before Mother's Day. The Ninth Annual Cheyenne Day of Giving will be held on May 9, 2014. While our event is celebrated annually, we assist our agencies by purchasing supplies for them throughout the year.
