Raffle helps house homeless veterans

LAWTON, Okla._The "Home at Last" project in Lawton held a raffle Saturday to raise money for housing for homeless veterans.

The project is renovating three houses so that homeless veterans can have a place to live.

They raffled off twelve items Saturday to raise funds to rewire two of the homes.

Vietnam veteran Don Shelby started the project. He says the homes aren't occupied right now but the goal is to have two of them complete by the end of the year.

"We hope to have those two houses done by December and make that their Christmas present. That will be rooms for three people because we have an office in there too. They will have their own individual kitchens," said Shelby.

To make a donation you can contact Don Shelby through the "Home at Last Lawton" Facebook page.
