Lawton Salvation Army needs blankets

Lawton_The winter weather seems to finally be arriving and that means the Salvation Army needs to stock up on blankets for the cold, so they're holding a blanket drive.

The Salvation Army offers a blanket to every person that comes to them for shelter, and supplies blankets to those in need during the winter months.

"As they leave, many people will take those blankets with them, so we encourage people to have blankets, new or used, that they would consider donating, that we would certainly be willing to accept them here at the Salvation Army," said Lawton Salvation Army Captain Ernest Hull. 

The blanket drive has been going on for about two weeks now, but there have been very few donors. If you'd like to donate blankets, you can drop them off at either the Salvation army on E Avenue or any of the Salvation Army Thrift Stores.
