Strengthening Our Military Family®    |      Armed Services YMCA Lawton Fort Sill


Santa's Closet

December 3rd - 8th, 2018 


While joyous, the holidays can also be a stressful time financially, especially on Junior Enlisted Soldier's and their families. We at the Armed Services YMCA of Lawton-Fort Sill want to make sure these families aren't going without this holiday season. This year, we have combined several support initiatives into one week-long event that we’ve lovingly named ‘Santa’s Closet’.  Santa's Closet will be held inside our Soldier's Closet facility, located behind the ASYMCA center at 900 NW Cache Rd., Lawton, OK 73507.

Santa’s Closet will provide Active Duty Junior Enlisted Soldiers (E1-E5) and their families with help for food and/or toys for the holidays.

Program Details: 

  • Must be Active Duty E1-E5 Sponsor or Dependent (must bring valid Military ID)
