Lawton group steps up to help family displaced by house fire

LAWTON, Ok (RNN Texoma) -

A local organization is reaching out to the Lawton community, aiming to help a family that lost everything get back on their feet.

The group "The Great 580" was at the Cameron Baptist Church annex building Thursday afternoon, gathering donations and supplies to a local family whose house burnt down this week.

They're gathering everything they can, like clothing, food and furniture.

They're hoping the community will be able to come together to help out a family in need.

"I know what its like to be down bad and have nothing and be there without a helping hand, and I also know what its like to have a helping hand, its always a lot easier when you have someone to help you out, like the bible says that a three-string cord is not easily broken,  its hard to do it on your own," said Pastor Jeff Elbert. "we just wanna see how Lawton's gonna do, how will Lawton respond and come together to help this family that's one of their own."

If you'd like to help, the group will be at the Cameron Baptist Church annex building again Friday from 4 until 6.

You can find a full list of clothing sizes and needed items on their Facebook page -- where they also have a link to a gofundme page for the family.
