LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A Christmas wish for sandwiches turned into a sandwich drive for the homeless.

An 8th grader at Elgin School donated sandwiches to a group called Hungry Hearts Monday.

Nathan Fant and his parents dropped off the 15 sandwiches and chips to the director of Hungry Hearts, Adriene Davis. Nathan's wish was part of the "Winter Wishes Program" at Elgin Middle School, which allowed their students to submit a wish for themselves and a wish for someone else.

Nathan says he was craving a sandwich when he made the wish.

"I was just thinking of different ways I could help, and I was thinking about homeless people in the community,” said Fant. “And they could always use a meal, so I thought that would help."

And the director was thankful for the donation. She says she feeds 40 to 65 people twice a week, all with donations from the community.

"I was in tears,” said Davis. “Because at such a young age, it's not a rarity but it's not very often that somebody is willing, at his age, willing to give unselfishly. He could have asked for anything. But he asked for sandwiches and he asked for sandwiches to feed the homeless. And it really touched my heart."

Another donation of Christmas gifts collected by students at Elgin Middle School, was also dropped off today to be delivered to children at the C. Carter Crane Homeless Shelter.
