When is the Cheyenne Day of Giving?
The 14th Annual Cheyenne Day of Giving will be held on Friday May 10, 2019. While we hold our event annually, we assist our agencies by purchasing supplies for them throughout the year.
Black Hills Energy gave us a $1250 grant in both 2017 and 2018. Last year they invited the Executive Board to a check presentation for us. We had a chance to talk about Day of Giving with a wonderful group of employees, and they presented us with a ‘big check.’ It was a happy time and a big help to our year-round efforts to help eleven local agencies!
The Youth Group at First Presbyterian Church made Super Bowl Sunday a great day for Day of Giving!
After the service, they lined up outside the sanctuary with the sign in this picture and baskets labeled “Commercials,” Patriots,” and “Eagles.” Donors could vote for their favorite part/s of the Super Bowl based on where they donated their money. We don’t know for sure which basket had the most cash, but Day of Giving is grateful for the hundreds of dollars donated in that very happy 15 minutes after the service!
Thanks to the Youth Group and leader Matt Woodard for helping us with a donation that will go toward purchases to help neighbors in great financial need! It’s donations like this one that make our year-round work of helping 11 area agencies possible!
