Very few professional athletes are as intimately involved with their foundations as Shane is. He is part of a team that is committed to the communities they represent. Whether it is Philly, Boston, Las Vegas or home on Maui, this Foundation has made a difference in countless lives of children year round. I live on Maui and have first hand seen the results. I volunteered last year and am looking forward to helping again this year.

Have known the Victorino Family for five years now. So thoroughly impressed with their commitment to community and children. They clearly get the importance of supporting the children. I couldn't be prouder to support the foundation.

The Shane Victorino Foundation is truly one of a kind. Mr. Victorino came to the Philadelphia area
as part of a professional sports team, the Philadelphia Phillies. Soon after, he was more than just another baseball player but a member of this city and truly cared what happened here. His foundation
Has provided numerous support to the children of the city by their generous gifts and the kids now love
when Mr. Victorino and his family come to visit so they can show them how much they have done. Even
though he is no longer a physically part of our city, he will always be from our city!

Shane and Melissa, along with their foundation staff, hold many great events throughout the year to motivate and support under served youth. They also contribute grants to provide programs and facilities to help the children.

Great Foundation for such a great cause. What they do really helps young kids that truly need their help and sets positve foundation for them to build on which will help them later in life. Have followed the foundation since it's formation. Love what Shane and his foundation does a true sign of giving back and paying it forward.

What Shane and his Foundation have done for young kids in Philadelphia and Hawaii in particular is amazing! Shane is an awesome role model for these kids and for those that play sports alongside him. I wish there were more professional players that followed his steps.

The SVF does a lot to help under served youth in multiple communities. I have been fortunate to be part of some of their local events in Las Vegas and they are run very professionally and I know that all donations go straight to those in need.

Shane has set up this foundation to help boys and girls from low income families a place to go and be active in positive activities. Shane gives back to the communities he is a part of.

Most professional athletes with even greater fame and fortune than Shane, DON'T give back to their communities. Almost as soon as Shane received his first "real" contract, the Shane Victorino Foundation. They didn't go out and buy a plane, vacation homes in foreign countries, or other ridiculously lavish things. This just goes to show the ultimate character of these two amazing people. I have seen, first hand, the grateful recipients of Shane & Melissa's generosity. Giving the $900,000 to the Boys and Girls Club in Philadelphia, although a large sum, is but a tiny contribution in the greater scheme of things. I have no doubt that the Shane Victorino Foundation will continue to help the communities that it serves. For the first time, in a long time, the underprivileged kids in Philadelphia and on Maui have one thing money can't buy: Hope.

want to help more often.
