300 needy families on this year's Angel Tree

Lawton_The Salvation Army is hosting its annual Angel Tree at Central Mall. Over 300 families have been signed up from our community. Your help is needed so these children can have new clothes and toys to open up on Christmas morning.

 "Because a lot of kids on Christmas won't have a gift unless we can have some gifts from the community to give to the families. There's a lot of need, a lot of hurt in our community, so any little thing that we can give to a family will be greatly appreciated," said Captain Debbie Hull.

You can pick up your angel between 10am and 9pm each day right outside of the Old Navy store in Central Mall.

All gifts are needed back by December 13th. Distribution date is scheduled for December 20th.
