LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -It's that time of the year to give back, and one of the ways you can do that is through the Salvation Army's Angel Tree. 

Saturday marked the start of the Angel Tree at the Lawton Central Mall. Every year, the Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary works to make sure that every child in our community has presents to open on Christmas Day. How it works is community members can come and 'adopt' an angel, and buy gifts for them.  
We caught up with the mayor of Lawton, who is adopting five children this holiday season. 

"This is the time of year when you really get to give back in so many ways to very special needs in the community, said Fred Fitch. "You know, it's a blessing that these children receive these gifts, but you know it's a blessing for Natalie and I to be able to do it."

The Angel Tree will be in the mall every day until December 12th.
