CHRISTMAS FOR KIDS

The goal of the Lawton Firefighters Association Christmas for Kids program is to assist Lawton families in need provide toys to their children on Christmas day. We are able to help provide assistance to those who are signed up with our program only by the many donations from local citizens, organizations, and businesses that support helping provide toys for children. The toys vary and no guarantees are given to the type or amount of toys that are able to be given. We try to provide a couple of toys per child up to the age of ten. Our organization is only trying to help the community. For further information about this program, please continue reading this page. Thanks for understanding and supporting our Christmas for Kids program. 

Note: Christmas for Kids works with the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, the Goodyear program, and the Ft. Sill Toys for Kids program. The sign-up list for each organization may be compared. A family may be removed from our list if they are taking inappropriate advantage of assistance programs.

DONATIONS and SUPPORT

Christmas for Kids greatly appreciates toy donations and support events. 

Christmas for Kids accepts new toy donations only for children between the ages of birth and ten years of age. Acceptable donations include items such as: toys, games, sporting items such as balls or frisbees, and educational books. Please do not donate clothes or stuffed animals as we are unable to size children for clothes and we are unble to ensure health and safety with stuffed animals. Donations may be brought to any Lawton Fire Station and will be collected before the 2016 Christmas for Kids toy distribution. 

If you are interested in supporting Christmas for Kids with a toy collections event, please contact James Schneider at Fire Station 7 ( 580-581-3297 ).
