LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Salvation Army is preparing for its "Angel Tree" Christmas assistance program in Lawton.
The program has been a yearly staple for over half a century to help families in need during the holidays.
The Angel Tree program provides toys and clothing to over 600 children in the community.
It also provides food boxes to eligible families.
This year you can pick an angel from the tree at Central Mall in Lawton starting November 19th.
Captain Claudia Roseno of the Salvation Army says each one represents a child's wish list from infancy until 14-years-old.
They might not have a Christmas without your donation.
"We want to make sure every child gets thought about this Christmas,” Captain Roseno said. “We want to make sure every child knows that someone is taking care of them, someone is thinking of them, someone went out of their way to get them a nice Christmas."
This year the Salvation Army of Lawton will accept applications for assistance at the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club located at 1315 SW F Avenue.
So how can you help the 3,400 angels this holiday season?
Anyone wishing to sign up can contact the Salvation Army at 580-355-1802 for more information.

    Some seismologists say Oklahoma could see a 5.0 magnitude earthquake sometime this year. A publication in the journal Science Advances says there is an 80 percent chance of such a quake hitting the state this year. That goes against an earlier study from Stanford this year, which said there was only a 37-percent chance.
