Highlands Church 

Highlands has a long standing tradition of helping those in need. More specifically, we support the COMEA Shelter by providing financial support and we are their “Coffee Partners” providing coffee, creamer and sugar. We provide financial support and collect non-perishable food items for Needs, Inc. And, we have a Lenten Fund that we use to give direct financial assistance to individuals and families in Cheyenne in the way of Walmart cards and payments for utilities and rent and other needs. To the extent that donations to our Lenten Fund will allow, we will support Cheyenne families and individuals in need. Out of an abundance of concern for privacy and health issues, we established a contingency plan so that we could continue to provide the Walmart cards. 


During this time of great urgency and need, Highlands is committed to helping the community of Cheyenne serve the most vulnerable: the homeless and people with low or no income. Until we are able to resume regular life at Highlands, members will have the opportunity to come to the church on Wednesdays, during staggered hours, to drop off non-perishables for Needs. We have challenged our selves to donate 5,000 pounds. We will also be collecting coffee for COMEA and monetary donations for both organizations as well as Meals on Wheels and Recover Wyoming.
