HEART organization gives out new sneakers

Lots of young students are getting new sneakers thanks to the "HEART" organization.

Today they stopped by Turner Elementary to drop off 100 pairs of shoes for students in need.

They'll give the same number to students at several other elementary schools.   

 Organizers say they saw a need and wanted to help out the Dougherty County School system

We found a need to support the school system, We realize that we are in a poverty striken area and a lot of times students don't have sufficient shoes to come to school in everyday, says Anne Johnson Milledge.

Since the project began in 2009, the group has handed out more than 31-hundred pairs of shoes.
