Christmas giveaway for Lawton youth

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) – A Lawton woman worked with members of the community to get Christmas gifts for local children.

The “Granny’s Christmas Giveaway” was held at 4 pm Monday at the H.C. King Community Center. There Lawton kids were given access to free gifts and clothes.

Wilma Smith, a LPS Bus monitor and the Granny behind the giveaway, collected donations from other monitors, bus drivers and the community to buy the presents. She said she organized the event to give something to children in need.

"I just love kids, and I don't like to see them hurt,” Smith said, “so I do this to try to help who I can."

Smith also organizes several events for Lawton youth, such as a back to school giveaway and yearly trips to the Oklahoma City Zoo.

Anyone looking to contribute to her work can donate funds to the “Granny’s Care” account at BancFirst.
