Two Lawton families recipients of 6 mos. free rent

Lawton_Just in time for Christmas.  The trees are up and the apartments ready for two lucky Lawton families.

They were chosen to get six months free rent.  And what started as a single act of generosity grew into a community affair.  Jervis Jackson, the director of continuum of care helped professional properties, who donated the apartments, select the families.  

Jackson says as soon as the ad went out they received countless e-mails and calls from families, friends, and neighbors who knew hard working families that needed a break.  From there, personal interviews were made and the hall and lahara families were selected.  They say it was a blessing for their families and the greatest present they could have received.

Jackson hopes the families will come out of the six months better off- with a fresh start into the New Year.
