Let us show you what we do & what's next!

Joey D'Andrea had an idea 4 years ago to have a Christmas time Pub Crawl, sell t-shirts and with all the money raised give it to single parent families that struggle around the holidays.  Well that first Year went well and he did it the next year, doing better and raising more.  Now heading into his 4th year of doing the Pub Crawls and adding more charity events so that the pot is bigger and can help more families, it's growing into a full non-profit organization. 

Who knew this former Portland High School Football player would let his heart take the lead in helping his community.  He grew up in a single parent household himself with 3 sisters, and watched his mother still help others around her even if her situation was not much better than theirs.   After the passing of his mother, Elaine Reny, he started to step up his efforts to help more families in need in memory of her.  

Now married, his wife Sha, helps with the management of the organization's paper work and event planning.  When not putting in time to "For The Kids" foundation, he works in carpentry and masonry for his own company Joey D Projects.​ 

Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!
