Steelers' QB Gives K-9 Grant to N.Y. Agencies

October 11, 2013  | 

Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has provided K-9 training grants to two New York City area law enforcement agencies on behalf of the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at the Giving Back Fund.

The grants will go to the Fort Lee Police Department and Fairfield Police Department. The Fort Lee PD will use the funds to purchase a new K-9 dog for their unit, while the Fairfield PD plans to use the funds to properly outfit a K-9 vehicle with a rear seat insert, automatic door opening system and fan for the dog's safety.

During the 2013-14 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.

While not a fan of the steelers or Ben I applaud this endeavor. He's been doing this for several years now and many agencies have benefited.
