Holidays With Heroes is a nonprofit organization sponsored through the Cheyenne Police Department and other emergency response agencies such as; Laramie County Sheriff’s Office, Wyoming Highway Patrol, Cheyenne Fire/Rescue, and American Medical Response (AMR). The goals of the organization are to provide local families in need this holiday season with gifts for the entire family. As other organizations provide toys for the smaller children, Holidays With Heroes looks to provide gifts for not only the little kids, but also the teenagers and parents as well.
Since many parents and older kids put the little children first, most years they just do without gifts for themselves. So we are asking for donations such as:
- Kitchen Acc.
- Gift Cards
- Pet Supplies
- New un-wrapped toys for children of all ages
- New or used video game systems/games
- New or used DVD and/or Blue-Ray Disc players/movies
- Tool Kits
- Winter Coats (all sizes)
- Monetary Donations
Any donations that could be provided for these families would greatly appreciated . With your help, we look forward to providing a Merry Christmas to those in need.
Thank you for your support
