Local shelter gets donation from club

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla_A Lawton children's shelter now has the money to add some much needed amenities to its facility, five brand new cribs. The Greater Lawton Rotary Club raised $1,000 for the J. Roy Dunning Children's Shelter so they could buy the beds, the group presented the check today.

"The Rotary Club is all about community. Our motto is service above self and when we can identify a need like this locally that perhaps somebody isn't tackling that needs to be addressed. We're happy to support something like that and in this case, we were able to fund the 5 beds through the community as well as the rotary club."

The club raised the money through concessions at the 93rd Annual Lawton elementary school track meet. They say this is the first time they've used the track meet as a fundraising event but say they plan to use it again in the future.
