Elwood - the Dog that Made the Whole World Smile.
With the passing of Elwood on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013, Elwood's mom, Karen, and her friends wanted Elwood's work to continue. It was suggested that an Elwood Scholarship be established to carry on his legacy of kindness and service.
The Everyone Loves Elwood Memorial Scholarship is now established at Gloucester County College in Sewell, NJ. Our goal is to raise $10,000 which will ensure a perpetual scholarship –which means lifetime. Fortunately, we are getting closer to the goal, but still need donations.
Elwood’s Scholarship will be awarded to individuals who support homeless animals and it will also benefit individuals with special needs – specifically students in the ACT program (Adult Center for Transition).
Elwood’s life on earth was short – just 8 years, but his legacy of tolerance and giving back will live on by helping others who share his same values.
Send donations to:
Rowan College at County College Foundation
Attn: Elwood Scholarship
1400 Tanyard Road
Sewell, NJ 08080
Checks can be made to the Rowan College at County College Foundation and it must have "Elwood Scholarship" in the memo line to be earmarked for his scholarship.
We never thought that all of Elwood's good work would end so suddenly so we will continue to help Elwood help others.

Elwood Teams Up with Project Night Night
Project Night Night is dedicated to improving the lives of homeless children, one sweet dream at a time. Established in 2005 the non-profit organization donates individual tote bags each filled with a security blanket, an age-appropriate book and a stuffed animal for children (ages 0 – 10) in homeless shelters.
Each child who receives a Night Night Package leaves the shelter owning a book which encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket which can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend.
If you would like to purchase Elwood's book and donate it to Project Night Night e-mail LoveElwood@comcast.net for more information.
