House of Bread Ministry set up at two Family Dollar stores Friday and Saturday in Lawton accepting donations for the less fortunate. It's their annual community Christmas collection. Their goal is to fill a truck with gifts and food.

They're filling the truck one item at a time. Food items, toys, hats, gloves, scarves socks you know any little things like that. Leona Vodden is a member of the House of Bread Ministry.

"My personal goal for this is to see us fill that truck and to spread you know good cheer to people," said Vodden.

She said donating her time is especially important to her.

"Growing up I didnt have a really good Christmases sometimes so as I got older I always wanted to do something that I could help to give back you know to little kids that are less fortunate."

They are also helping adults too. They'll be giving out all the gifts they've collected December 11th at the Center for Creative Living in Lawton.

The church said they will also be holding a food drive. The food they collect will go to help with their three Christmas feeding sites at the Savannah House, the Museum of the Great Plains, and the Pleasant Valley Community Center.
