Lawton Fire Department holds Holiday Toy Run

Lawton Fire Department holds Holiday Toy Run

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -A group of bikers helped the Lawton Fire Department collect toys and food Saturday, for those in need this holiday season.

The Lawton Coalition of Motorcyclist held a poker run to help the fire department for their Christmas for Kids program. 
They are able to serve about a thousand kids in Lawton alone. Gift packages will be prepared for each family and delivered by the Lawton Fire department.

The fire fighters feel the experience is almost more rewarding for them, than it is for the children.

"It feels good to help each kid," said Rex Scrudder, firefighter for Lawton. "See the parents sign of relief in their eyes when they're able to receive the toys. It's good to know that were trying to get some good out there to the public and they're thankful for it."

If you would like to request your family be placed on the 'Toys for Tots' list, you can contact your  local fire station. The toys are donated to kids ages twelve and younger.
