Kids helping other kids! That’s what the Super Kids, Super Sharing event is all about.

"We are here today for the Super Kids, Super Sharing project, which is a part of the Super Bowl," said Susan Groh, Associate Director of NFL Environmental.

Tens of thousands of books, school supplies, sports equipment and games were collected at St. Thomas University during NFL's Green Week ahead of Super Sunday.

More than 100 schools got involved, running collection drives to help underprivileged children in the greater Miami area.

"So, I think my favorite thing about Super Kids is that this project is all about children helping other children. They get the message that some kids don't have as much as they do. And, they are so excited to share with other children. You can see the enthusiasm when they come in," said Groh.

"This is really exciting for me because I want kids that are less fortunate to feel how I feel getting new things," said Natalia Rojas, Super Kid.

"We've been doing the Super Kids project for 21 years now. This is the second time we've been in Miami with this big Super Kids project and there is even more energy this time. Lots of involvement from kids, lots of enthusiasm and it's great to see this project grow locally here," said Groh.

The kids who helped run the collection drives got a prize of their own, a football field day organized by the Miami Dolphins. And Fins players were also on hand to help and sign autographs.
