DescriptionThe "Bobby Thomas Foundation" is named after my father who was a police officer in the city of Passaic NJ. He passed away on November 19, 1979 after losing his battle with cancer. As a police officer my father ran a program called "Doin it in the park". It was a safe haven for kids in the city of Passaic. There were camps, food drives, toy drives, and other programs to aid those in need. Two years ago the mayor of Passaic unveiled a new street called "Bobby Thomas Way". It's located right by the park that helped so many. To this day the police department has the "Bobby Thomas Award" given to the officer that exhibits the most community service. Although I only had an opportunity to spend the first four years of my life with my father but the stories that I've been told from adults that still talk about how he changed their lives moved me to action.
I am the CEO of Crossroads Basketball LLC. (www.crossroadsbasketball.com) I started Crossroads Basketball nine years ago to help the kids in the Sussex County area get better. In this time we have helped over 50 kids play college basketball and three reach their dreams of playing professionally. The issue we have in Sussex County is theres nowhere for kids to play all year round. My goal is to open up a facility in the next two years and build something that can help kids reach their goals. Our facility will serve the community of Sussex just like my fathers did in Passaic.
We need to raise money for our non profit to make this dream a reality. Im based in Morris County NJ and I'm looking for 2 NJ interns to help find sponsors, handle paperwork, and hit the phones. Most duties will be done in a remote location but we will be meeting weekly to discuss progress.
