When is the Cheyenne Day of Giving?
The 19th Annual Cheyenne Day of Giving will be held on May 10, 2024. While we hold our event annually, we fundraise all year to assist our agencies by purchasing supplies for them throughout the year.
Whispering Chase has been a stalwart supporter of Day of Giving for many years. Not only do they hold a yearly fundraiser to encourage their residents to donate to Day of Giving, but they also open their raffle and bake sales to the public. We also have the privilege of displaying one of our Day of Giving banners on their property, and they volunteer to be a drop-off point so residents can drop off items for Whispering Chase to bring out to us at our yearly event on the 2nd Friday in May. Thank you, Whispering Chase, for helping us reach out to area residents in need!
Our Youth Event the afternoon before our annual event is a great way for teams, clubs, school groups, and youth groups to reach out to their age peers! They organize collections of food, personal care items, and/or craft items at schools, churches, or businesses, then deliver those items to the Youth Event. The youth are the ones doing all the jobs the adults will be doing the next day, and they bring huge help to families in great need.
