About the Wood Family Foundation: The Wood Family Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children in and around Chicago by raising funds and awareness for children's charities and the causes they support. It raises funds through events, sponsorships and donations. The Foundation is committed to working toward funding both immediate and long-term relief projects for various children's issues. Two of the Foundation's largest initial efforts will involve funding a playroom for the children receiving treatment for cancer at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and teaming up with the Chicago Cubs to help build a high school baseball field for students in an underserved area. Other planned Foundation projects include providing school supplies and clothing for children in need. The Foundation will sponsor various "drives" to encourage donations such as school supplies, clothing, and toys for children and children's charities which the Foundation supports in and around Chicago.
