LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Lawton Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club kicked off its annual Adopt-A-Child campaign Tuesday evening. 

They're hoping to find individuals and businesses who will help needy families cover the cost of $300 per year, per child, so the kids can take advantage of all the after school opportunities the club provides.

"They come home to an empty house, where parents are working,” said Captain Israel Roseno. “Sometimes they don't have anything to eat, so when they come to the Boys and Girls Club, they are safe, they are learning with productive, very positive activities."

The goal of the campaign is to sponsor 134 children annually.  If you'd like to help, you can contact Captain Roseno at the Salvation Army at 580-355-1802.
