The impact of COVID19 has been felt throughout our community and surrounding areas. The Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce is calling on our residents to help support our local businesses affected.

Feel free to use this page as a community resource to find local businesses that are offering curbside pickup, take out/delivery, or online gift card ordering and online shopping, as well as resources for business owners and residents.

To help support our small businesses and hospitality industry, please consider ordering for delivery or pick up from a local restaurant or by purchasing a gift card during this time. Be sure to tip the food delivery drivers and take out servers—your support means so much and helps support their livelihood!

Healthy practices are key to combating the virus pandemic.
