TAMPA, Fla. (WTXL) — A Florida couple asked guests to bring school supplies instead of gifts to their wedding to help children in need in their community.

They received backpacks jammed with school supplies and uniforms from over 70 guests.

Under "Registry" on their wedding website, Kelli and Matt asked guests to head to Amazon where a list of items needed for school supplies had been created.

Along with the school supplies, wedding guests donated underwear, socks, water bottles and cleaning supplies.

All the wedding donations will be handed over to Booker T. Washington Elementary in Tampa for students who attend the school.
