Round 2 Resources is a not-for-profit organization committed to protecting the environment. By accepting all donations and redistributing them back into our community to people & organizations in need, we prevent usable resources from going into a landfill and recycle unusable items. Being a resource to other organizations and linking them to help each other, R2R Inc is capable of helping every class of charitable organization without discrimination. We are not fighting to champion one cause, we are fighting for the world!
The fighter behind the cause is Wendy LaMotta, President and CEO of Round 2 Resources. Wendy LaMotta started Round 2 Resources in 2007 after she graduated from NYU with a Masters Degree in Public Administration. Round 2 Resources derived it’s name from the play on words which represents the recycle element of the organization and the former boxing career of the CEO. Wendy was a decorated amateur fighter from 2000-2003. She held multiple titles including: Golden Gloves Champion, Diamond Gloves Champion, Fighter of the Night, Female Fighter of the Golden Gloves Tournament, National Bronze Medalist as well as being ranked fifth in the country in her weight class. From 2003-2007 Wendy had a successful professional career, retiring 6-1 with 2 knockouts, ranked 23rd in the world and #7 in the country.
Studying under the gifted trainer, Luis A Negron at El Coqui Boxing Club of Newark, she learned to speak Spanish and embraced the Hispanic culture of her trainer and teammates.
Creating an organization without barriers or boundaries was a priority to Wendy. An example of how we do this:
Jane Smith is moving and donates all of the contents of her apartment to Round 2 Resources including clothing, housewares, electronics, furniture, toys etc
Round 2 Resources keeps Wish Lists from not-for-profit organizations & community organization so that:
- the suits in her closet go to Dress for Success
- the old sheets go to the Liberty Humane Society
- her living room set goes to a recently housed guest from the Hoboken Shelter
- her broken TV goes to an E-cycle facility where they are recycled
- her old laptop goes to the United Way work program
- the toys are donated to the Head Start program of West New York
After the item has been successfully placed, the donor will receive a receipt letter thanking them for their donation which explains where and how their donation has impacted the community and environment.
Many of these clients on the receiving end of the donations, volunteer their time to Round 2 Resources to help deliver donations to other clients. The way our organization is structured allows the recipients the opportunity to pay forward the blessings they receive. This not only helps them to develop a sense of pride in self, but pride in community as well. In addition it helps Round 2 Resources increase its volunteer pool to be able to perpetuate its mission.

When donations come into Round 2, they are matched against the Community Wish Lists. Once a match is made, that item is redistributed back into the community to the requesting organization or client.
