Soldiers Donate Clothes for Lawton Students

Posted: Updated:

Lawton, Okla._Dozens of students at a Lawton elementary school will be well dressed for classes this fall thanks to a donation from some Ft. Sill soldiers.

Soldiers from 100th Brigade Support Battalion dropped off boxes full of clothes at Pat Henry Elementary Thursday afternoon.

It's for the "Attire to Inspire" program. The campaign provides uniforms to kids in need that meet the modified dress code for Lawton Public Schools.

The soldiers bought and donated 78 outfits for students at Pat Henry.

LTC Nathan Goubeaux said, "It's a great feeling for us. The community has been great for the military and we really enjoy returning the favor to them so it's a great opportunity for us to help these kids out."

Pat Henry's principal Karen Cooksey said she was surprised and grateful for the help from the soldiers.

"We are just overwhelmed with their generosity and these are the people that serve and protect us everyday so, it's been a great gift," Cooksey said.

LPS implemented the dress code at a dozen elementary schools over the past two years. It requires polo style shirts and slacks or shorts for kindergarten through 5th graders.

If you'd like to donate new or gently used clothing to the boys and girls, contact Lawton Public Schools.
