The Randy Foye Foundation truly fulfills its mission to give back to the community of Newark, NJ. Christina works non-stop with all of the outreach and fundraising activities. Her and Randy always keep the "kids" #1. They have done a great job in such a short time. I am always happy to help them when I can, because I know that they maximize my donation's impact to benefit the community.

this organization goes WELL above and beyond the expectations one might have for a non-profit still in its infancy. christina is the heart and soul of this organization, clocking far more hours that the job requires. this is clearly her passion, and she is great at it, especially the mentoring she does with the assist for life program children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a cut of the facebook guy's donation.

the most altruistic people i have ever encountered, especially christina

i wore more appropriate shoes to this year's gala, and it wasn't so hot out

this organization would flop without christina, she makes ALL of it happen

I am a school adiministrator who has witnessed 1st hand the generosity extended by the RFF. In this present day climate where funding is almost non-exsistent for extra-curricular activities, the RFF often comes to the rescue and ensures kids are not disappointed. Randy himself visted our school and delivered a powerful personel message to the students. He embodies living proof that anything is possible and is an inspiration to our students. Christina Vuocolo who is the foundationn's V.P. is an extremley conscientious individual who goes to any length to make great things happen for children. The children of Newark are fortunate to be the benefactors of such wonderful people and their organization!

The Randy Foye Foundation serves the youth of Newark, NJ. The foundation is named after former Villanova Basketball player and current NBA player, Randy Foye. Foye grew up on the rough streets of Newark and experienced the harsh realities of the streets first hand. He was orphaned by the age of 6 and was a witness to many things no one should ever have to see in their lifetime. With the help of his teachers and mentors, Foye made it out of the streets and vowed to come back and help someday. He's made it his passion to mentor the youth of his hometown in the hopes that they are able to make better lives for themselves just as he did. When you make a contribution to this organization, you directly see where your donation goes. You can be confident that you're helping children in Newark and that the money is being put to great use. I love Randy's story and love that I'm able to help him help his community.

Randy Foye is an example of true altruism. He is grateful for having been given many opportunities, and is determined to demonstrate his love for the children of the city of Newark, his home towm. He is sincere in his efforts, and is humble and almost uncomfortable to receive recognition and praise. What an amazing role model for these kids!

The Randy Foye Foundation is an incredible organization with a clear mission. In addition to the financial assistance that they provide to a much-needed area, the leaders of this organization also regularly mentor youth through the Assist for Life program. I truly believe that the mentoring is a life-changing experience for these students as it helps prepare them for the future.

mentoring. I have witnessed first-hand the impression that the leaders of this organization have had on the students. Each year the students speak at the annual "Night for Newark" gala. The progression that they have made is tremendous and undeniable.
