Today, Ben announced the fifth and sixth grant awards of the 2017 season from the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation at The Giving Back Fund.
The Foundation will be distributing grants to the Bonner Springs Police Department and the Independence Police Department, just outside of Kansas City where the Steelers will play the Chiefs on October 15th.
The Independence Police Department will use the grant funds to replace a K-9 close to retirement, while the Bonner Springs Police Department will use the funds to purchase training equipment to better their K-9’s skills in both narcotics detection and patrol.
You can support future K-9 grants by purchasing candy on Sarris Candies’ website, (www.SarrisCandiesFundraising.com), using a special purchase code (77-7777). Sarris will donate 25 percent of the purchase price to the foundation.
