JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

As the first day of school in Duval County approaches, the Sulzbacher Center is helping kids get ready and excited with special help from NFL star Mario Butler.

Butler and teammate Dominique-Rodgers Cromartie from the Denver Broncos worked with the center to give backpacks and plenty of other school supplies to kids in need.

Kids found notebooks, folders, pens, pencils and crayons inside their bags.

"Even if it's not a whole bunch of supplies to get them through the whole year, to see the look on their faces is still the best feeling ever," said Brittany Butler, Mario Butler's wife.

Neither of the Denver Bronco's could be there, but Butler's wife and mother-in-law both came up to help give out backpacks.
