I am Penn State sophomore and Dog Jog Foundation (pending official non-profit status) president Zack Neiner. I was wondering if maybe you could spread this information via your twitter to help us out with our efforts.
My organization is putting together a relief drive in State College and Philadelphia suburbs for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey.
We will be collecting goods on Thursday November 15 outside of the Student Book Store on E 330 College Avenue, State College, PA, from noon to 6 p.m and 3-5 p.m. on Friday.
We will continue collecting donations in the suburbs of the Philadelphia area at Downingtown East High School in Exton on Sunday November 18 and at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Doylestown on Saturday November 17, 4:30-6:45 p.m. and Sunday November 18 from 7:15 a.m. – 1 p.m; 4:30 – 6:15 p.m.
The drive is part of a campaign of ours called Unconditional Love, doing big and some things to help spread happiness in the world. It goes off the theme of how dogs give unconditional love for no motive. We hope with our relief drive, we can make some people smile.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Of course. They don’t call us the blog of the people for nothing! And we, like everyone else, hate Sandy. That bitch. So when we can help out Philly and PSU in any way, we’re in. Just gotta ask. Thanks for the email Zack, and keep up the good work. You’re the man.

Canned or boxed food, pet food, water, cleaning products, hygiene products, bleach, and batteries are much appreciated and will be hand delivered to the non-profit “Project Rebuild” by members of the Dog Jog Foundation during the week of Thanksgiving. They plan to drive to New Jersey in order to offer the donated materials personally.
While mainly focusing on animal welfare, The Dog Jog Foundation wishes to improve the quality of life for every living being on the planet. Hurricane Sandy affected humans and animals alike, and the members of The Dog Jog Foundation encourages everyone from the local community to donate to those who were impacted by the devastating storm.
