Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club Wants Your Help with Their Adopt-A-Child Program
The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Lawton/Fort Sill has just kicked off their second annual "Adopt-A-Child" program. This year Senator Randy Bass has been chosen as the 2012 Campaign Spokesperson. Senator Bass recalls attending the Lawton/Fort Sill Boys and Girls Club as a child and remembers it as a fun place to go after school where he could play basketball, baseball and learn the sport of boxing.
The Adopt-A-Child program was officially kicked off in 2010 and was very successful. Captain Ernie Hull stated that 53 children were allowed a summer camp experience last year because of the program. He stated they were even able to rent a bus to take the kids to camp.
The goal for the campaign this year is to sponsor 150 children at a cost of $300 per year, per child. Hull explained that with an annual child sponsorship, the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club delivers an excellent return on investment in the lives of our community's children.
