Donate Resources or Equipment


The Adopt-A-School program began in Cheyenne in 1988 as a cooperative effort between Laramie County School District 1 and the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce Education Committee. The program promotes community support for education by developing links among schools, businesses and public agencies in addition to providing expanded educational opportunities for students.

The program goals are as follows:

  • To establish cooperative partnerships
  • To match the resources of professionals with schools so they can collaborate successfully on specific projects identified by the schools
  • To supplement classroom studies with relevant learning experiences in business, industry and government
  • To help business and community leaders understand the local educational system.

Each partnership is a creative, collaborative effort. The program is administered by schools and the LCSD1 Community Relations office. For more information or to adopt a school, please call 307-771-2192 or download this brochure.

Donate School Supplies

Collected school supplies from across the community are distributed to more than 1,300 income-qualified students each year in Laramie County through the "Operation Back to School" program. Generous donations from individuals and organizations enable school supplies to be distributed throughout the school year to all segments of the population including elementary, junior high, high school and college-bound students.
