LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Due to this artic blast that's making it's way through Texoma, local shelters are gearing up for an increase in people to house and help out.

The C. Carter Crane Shelter for the homeless in Lawton has already seen more people show up early this week when temperatures started to drop.

The shelter not only offers temporary housing, but will help people get back on their feet, into a transition home or find a home of their own. 

Heinz Kyle, the director of the shelter, says they're always pretty busy during the holiday season, but it's also the giving season, and the community steps up to help out with donations.

"Things become pretty hectic around here, said Kyle. "People this time of the year, their hearts open up wider and they're much more giving. We're in a community that's absolutely fantastic at that anyway."

Kyle says they are specifically asking for the community the donate big coats for men and women this winter. If you would like to donate or help out, you can call 580- 248-0936 or drop by the shelter.
