LHS Ignition Mentors gather food and funds for food bank

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)-A group of students from Lawton High School is gathering funds and food for the Lawton Food Bank, all ahead of a special fundraising event for next week.

The LHS Ignition Mentors stood outside of Walmart Friday, gathering money and canned food donations for the Food Bank.

It's all a part of their first Lead2Feed project and also serves  as a promotion for their next project.

Next Friday, the Mentors will be working with the LHS Drama Club to host a "Scare Away Hunger" Halloween Safehouse.

There they'll gather more donations and share candy, games and fun scares with the community.

The mentors will be gathering donations again Saturday from noon to 3:00 p.m. outside the Walmart on Sheridan.
