Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._The American Red Cross Heroes Campaign is officially underway in Lawton.

The campaign usually begins in March, which is American Red Cross month, but the Great Plains Chapter kicked off its campaign a day early. Ft. Sill National Bank gave the first donation of $1,000 Friday morning.

Later in the afternoon, Atlanta Bread Company donated a percentage of its proceeds from the restaurant's food and cookie sales. Atlanta Bread manager, Michelle Verducci was excited to jumpstart the campaign, "To help with the campaign is very exciting to me. I really enjoy helping with the community. It helps them get started with the month and it's very exciting"

The Heroes Campaign runs the entire month of March; they hope to raise $25,000. You can help them out by mailing your donation to 6 SE Lee Blvd Lawton, OK 73501. You can also head over to if you're interested in volunteering.
