The Salt Cellar, a local Christian bookstore, will partner with the Lawton Firefighter Association to host Christmas for Kids, a local toy drive, starting at 9 a.m. Saturday at the store.
Organized by James Schneider of the Lawton Fire Department, the drive will collect new toys for local children in need for Christmas. The department will have a fire truck and a collection bin in front of the store during business hours.
Schneider asked that community members bring new toys to the drive. "No clothing," Schneider said, specifying that the purpose of the drive is to collect "common toys used from birth up to 12 years old."
Delayna Wilkerson, owner of The Salt Cellar, said she approached the fire department earlier in the year to offer assistance with a toy drive.
