The Glen Rock NJ Dog Park is being built at no cost to the Borough through the efforts of non-profit group founded by Glen Rock resident (and Girl Scout) Michelle Hillock, 20. The park is the only canine recreation park in the United States dedicated specifically to the 9/11 Search and Rescue dogs.
Founder Michelle Hillock shares her reasoning for the dedication, “As we pass the eighteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it is even more poignant that we are close to opening the only park dedicated to the 9/11 search and rescue dogs who were such an integral part of the mission to find survivors and victims of the WTC tragedy. I was only 2 years old when the planes hit the building, however because it directly affected my family – my Mom was in the building and two of my uncles responded to the scene - the impact on me personally through the years has been extraordinary.”
Michelle continues, “We really appreciate the leadership at Stop & Shop choosing our non-profit as a beneficiary of this great community program. We also appreciate the help and support our group has received from so many people over the last five years, and continues to receive, and I’m thrilled to see the park finally come to fruition. ”
Stop & Shop’s Community Bag Program, launched in May 2019, is a reusable committed to making a difference in communities in which they love and work. The goal of their Community Bag Program is to make it easy for customers to give back to the community while supporting the environment.
