An elementary school concert ends with a very special surprise

Manchester Elementary School in Poplar Grove held its school concert on Monday

.Jack and Colleen Long are brother and sister, and are and both legally blind. At the end of their concert, they were surprised with E-Sight Glasses.

E-Sight are glasses that let people with a visual impairment see. The community donated $7,000 dollars for the glasses.

The kid's mom says she's so grateful for the special gift.

"The whole community has been involved in the school especially, so we wanted them to be apart of what we're experiencing too." said Shannon Long.

The Long family plans to hold a fundraiser soon to raise money for other kids who need E-Sight Glasses.
