LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- House of Bread Ministry held a Christmas dinner for those in need of a hot meal on Saturday. More than 300 people and families stopped by Museum of the Great Plains for the feast. They were served turkey, ham, dressing and more. Volunteers also gave their time to cook and distribute the food.
House of Bread Ministry Associate Pastor Ramonda Bruno said the day was all about giving back and spreading the joy of the holiday to those without.
"We hope that they know that there's people that love them and that care about them," said Bruno. "We just want them to feel welcomed."
Gabrielle Brown was one visitor at the Christmas dinner. She came to the event with her family to also give back and get to know the people in the community who need help.
"It's very difficult, but I wouldn't know how it feels unless I sat down and talked to them and got to know them on a personal level," said Brown.
House of Bread Ministry is also collecting donations for their Hope for the Holiday program to help teenagers 13-18 years old and seniors 50-80 years old. Their goal is to raise $500.
