Super kids helping out at Salvation Army center

The Super Bowl doesn't just bring fans to the valley; it brings out a community spirit that benefits Arizona kids.

Valley students dropped off a huge donation of books, school supplies, and sports equipment at the Salvation Army's South Mountain Kroc Community Center.

"It's fun to help out donating to other people who needs them it, just feels good that we're helping people who don't have what we have so it's pretty fun," said a student.

"We've got great participation and enthusiasm. You can see these kids are doing great here, we've got about 100 schools participating," said Jack Groh.

Dozens of boxes filled with items like books and sports equipment were brought in, a total of 14,000 items donated by 50 schools right here in the valley.

Arizona Cardinals players attended the event. "It's a great opportunity for me; I'm used to helping people out for the bigger goal. It's great to see these kids come out today and help each other out, and I think that's what it is all about," said Tyrann Mathieu.

Those donations will now be distributed to schools and organizations that serve children in need.

This is the 15th year the National Football League has helped organize the Super Kids, Super Sharing project.
