WFF donates more than $16K of school supplies

Foundations teams up with Cubs at Back to School Rally

CPS Safe Haven Back to School Rally

The Wood Family Foundation teamed up with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, Aug. 5, for a Safe Haven Back to School Rally organized by Chicago Public Schools.

It was a great day with the kids, as we handed out snacks from Enjoy Life, activity books courtesy of JetBlue and PBS KIDS, Wood Family Foundation mood pencils and fun tattoos! We also had a ball toss in which some future pitchers won Wood Family Foundation baseball caps, and the Cubs Trolley came out to give the kids a Cubs experience and some more great giveaways.

With help from our friend's at Shane's, we were able to donate more than $16,000 of school supplies to 3,500 kids in need. Thank you, Shane's, and thanks to all our volunteers. It was a great day!
