LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A group Cameron Students joined together to share some good food and holiday cheer.

Students with the PLUS scholarship program worked with the Aggie Men’s Basketball Team to host a chilli cook-off at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in the McCasland Ballroom.

Lawton firefighters were on the scene, but not as a precaution for the spicy competition – rather, they were there to collect the gifts for the ongoing “Christmas for Kids” campaign.

The PLUS scholars all purchased toys for the holiday program, and as Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs Sylvia Burgess explained, the good deed was more than just a simple purchase for them.

“It’s very meaningful, I believe, to the PLUS students,” Burgess said. “They understand what it’s like to not have, and they see the kids who don’t have, and they all want to help those kids have – and I’ll get emotional about this -- but they want those kids to have a merry Christmas.”

“Christmas for Kids” donations can be delivered at any Lawton fire station before the gift distribution on Thursday, Dec. 15.
