LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- The Hungry Hearts Feeding Ministry held their second annual Christmas Dinner. It was held at the American Legion Post on Southwest 11th Street.
Everyone was invited to come out and enjoy a hot meal and open gifts from Santa! 

Hungry Hearts Feeding Ministry is a non-profit organization that feeds the homeless and people in need in our community. On Christmas morning they were able to feed over 100 people and their families.

"We are doing our second annual Christmas meal for the homeless and for those that don't have anyone to spend Christmas with. Around the holiday times people tend to get depressed because they have lost loved ones, but we have so many that are homeless in Lawton and they don't have anywhere to lay there heads or get a hot meal," said Davis.

Dozens of volunteers served the traditional turkey, ham, trimmings and desserts. Giving back to others is something Samuel Dickerson enjoys.

"It makes me feel great, it makes all of us feel great...all of the volunteers here we feel great about it. We are all donating our time and stuff like that, it's great, it's a great feeling," said Dickerson.

Santa was also there passing out coats, hats and scarves, and hundreds of toys from trucks to dolls  to children and their families. The gifts and the food came from various people in the community, and organizations.

"It's just been amazing the out pour of generosity. The Lawton community has just been wonderful," said Davis.

 Davis said giving back, showing love and compassion is the reason for the season.

"You know giving a gift of joy and hope it's so many people who lose hope around this time of the year so that's what Christmas is all about to me is just giving back to the community," said Davis.

Davis said any gifts left over will be donated to Southwestern Medical Center, The Indian Hospital, and Family Promise of Lawton.
