LAWTON, Ok. – 7NEWS is teaming up with the New Directions Women's Shelter to make this holiday season and the new year the best it can be for battered women and their families.
Members of our news team will be out in front of the Holiday House at Elmer Thomas Park Friday, December 18th between 5 and 7 p.m. We're asking the public for donations, Christmas presents for kids of any age, as well as everyday essentials for the shelter.
Better yet, after you help the cause, you and your family will be able to enjoy the Christmas lights and decorations from "Holiday in the Park".
LATS bus passes
Toiletries such as deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and hair care products

For Christmas, the shelter has clients of all ages -- from 1 day old to elderly women. That includes teenage boys and girls, a group they usually don't get many presents for.
