Generous Donation Leaves Johnson Gretna Park Students “Walking on Clouds”

image_6Students at Johnson Gretna Park Elementary School received an early Christmas present thanks to a very generous community organization. Ecclesia Family Church (2131 Huey P. Long in Gretna) made a special donation to every student. Each student received a free pair of TOMS tennis shoes, school supplies, art supplies, and toys.

“These shoes feel like walking on clouds,” said fourth grader Ben Williams. “I love them.”

The students were not the only ones happy and excited with the new shoes and supplies.

“This feels like Christmas,” said art teacher Alicia Zapata, “and you have no idea how much this means to our students.”
