SHARE Wood Foundation will help needy kids

Former Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood and his Wood Family Foundation have selected the Nash Elementary School in the Austin neighborhood for the foundation’s annual “Warm Wishes” program.

Donors and sponsors will help create a “winter wonderland” at the school for December and each of the 430 pupils will receive a winter coat and holiday gift.

The foundation also will team with the Haray Caray restaurants to collect new winter clothing items, including new hats, gloves and scarves for children in the Englewood and Lawndale neighborhoods from now through Jan. 18. Collection bins will be set up in the four restaurant locations on Kinzie Street, Rosemont, Lombard and Navy Pier.
