December 20, 2019 03:04 PM

Garfield Elementary students received an early holiday present on Friday.

Shortly after the school’s scheduled sing-a-long Friday afternoon, Andre Dawson, Director of Imagine For Youth Foundation announced that all 250 students will be receiving a new pair of Nike shoes.

Imagine For Youth is a Foundation created by Buffalo Bills Safety and former University of Iowa quarterback and safety, Micha Hyde and his wife Amanda

The foundation provides support so children can flourish into promising athletes.

Garfield was chosen because Mr. Dawson, also a former Hawkeye, attended the school and has fond memories of his time there.

The foundation donated backpacks to Grant Wood elementary earlier in the year and plans more events at other area schools.
