Steelers' Roethlisberger Gives K-9 Grant To N.J. Agency

November 02, 2012  | 

Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger provided a K-9 training grant to the Jersey City Police Department on behalf of the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at the Giving Back Fund.

The Jersey City PD will use the funds to purchase much needed equipment for their K-9 unit service dogs including crates, ballistic vests, and combat harnesses among other gear for their 10 canines.

The department has been working in extreme overdrive since before Monday's storm to help its citizens safely deal with the storm's aftermath.

"This is why we do what we do," said Roethlisberger. "Providing dogs to first respondents so that they can respond in times like this is our main motivation. The citizens of Jersey City are fortunate to have such dedicated police and fire departments on hand and we are proud to assist in this small way."

During the 2012-13 NFL season, the foundation will be distributing grants to K-9 units of police and fire departments in the cities and surrounding communities of each regular season away game for the Steelers.
