LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Santa's delivery came early for some children in Duncan.

Duncan Community Development, a non-profit organization, received an anonymous donation from Oklahoma City... a U-Haul truck filled with toys.

The group visited four low-income apartment complexes Saturday to give to those children who might have gone without presents under the tree.


They received backpacks and gift bags some with Nintendo Wii, puzzles, action figures and clothes all to enjoy on Christmas.

Many parents said the gifts may be the best ones their child will open on Christmas day.

Ryan Dunne is just one of many that received gifts for the holiday season. His plan is to give the bags he collected to his two stepsons.

"For other people to come out and do this and give to people that need it, it just a miracle. It's the stuff we stress about every day and the last month. It's Christmas time, we don’t have the money to do this. Then you’ll come through here and do all this for us it means the world,” said Dunne.

Dunne says without the help of the community he did not know how he would get through what he considers a tough time of year.

 

"I'm a recovering addict, I'm a recovering alcoholic and this is one of the hardest times for me this year. And to be sober today, and this happen, like I know I deserve this and so does my family."

Although, this is the first-year Duncan Community Development started the gift delivery, Pastor of Stevens County Worship Center Sandy Stewart, says she just wanted to have the opportunity to give back.

"One of the things that I love is we all have the tendency to feel like we need to come up with our own thing to help people but there are wonderful organizations in this community like 'DCD' that are already doing things. And if more of us could just come alongside and help what endeavors they've started we could do so much more. There are so much more people we could reach,” said Stewart.

 

Dunne says, "As far as everyone knows it’s a rough time a year for a lot of people. But we've been trying to get through it and you’ll have just made my day today. Really you have."


Volunteers and community members from Duncan community development and Stephens county worship center delivered over one thousand toys to two hundred children Saturday.
