The Lawton Food Bank is celebrating it's 35th Birthday this weekend.

If possible please make a donation and help your neighbors in need.

During the birthday celebration they're asking you to consider making a $35.00 donation in honor of their 35th birthday. A $35.00 donation would provide 140 meals. They're goal is 100 donors which would provide 14,000 meals to families in need. The first 100 donors to stop by will receive a cupcake and will be entered into a drawing for a $100.00 gift card to the Silver Spoon or Atlanta Bread Company. It's gonna be a good time for a great cause!

On average the Lawton Food Bank assists round 1,300 families per month. Your donation would go a long way in helping others in need right here in the Lawton, Fort Sill community. The past several month's have been extra challenging with the COVID-19 pandemic and the unfortunate job losses that have come with it. Times are tough, it's even tougher right now. The food bank has seen a lot of new families and individuals lately who could use our help.

You can always drop off canned food and non-perishable food items along with personal hygiene products, baby supplies like diapers, formula, baby food and right now there's a real need for protein rich foods like canned meats so when you're shopping keep that in mind. Of course monetary donations are always welcomed and 100% of what you give stays local. However you can or choose to give would be greatly appreciated.
