RANDY FOYE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION wrote -
Randy Foye was just 24 years old when he started his namesake foundation after his rookie season in the NBA. The Randy Foye Foundation (RFF) gives back to Newark, NJ, the community where Foye grew up. Having lost both of his parents before his 6th birthday, Randy draws on his own experiences to provide a brighter future for those that are going through the same trials and tribulations that he faced as a child. Randy is a positive role model for at-risk youth throughout the world because he understands the difficulties that they face and genuinely wants to help.
With programs like Assist 4 Life, Foye provides regular mentoring and character education to students. He takes them to visit his alma mater, for many their first trip to a college campus. Foye has personally shared his story with over 2,500 kids across NJ this fall. For the holidays, RFF has many upcoming initiatives including their annual Coats for Kids collection and Holiday Toy Drive. Now in his 6th NBA season, Randy continues to make a huge impact for underprivileged kids by creating opportunities for them to be successful contributors to society and future world leaders.
