The foundation's annual Christmas Wish program provides thousands of dollars' worth of gifts to deserving families in need during the holiday season. Johnjay and Rich continue their community work throughout the year with the Johnjay and Rich #LoveUp Foundation, a non-profit organization that strives to improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable children in our communities with a primary focus on children living in the foster care system.
