SKOKIE -- Second Life Mac has teamed with Kerry Wood and the Wood Family Foundation to provide iPads for the foundation's Pitch In After-School Program in Chicago.

Second Life Mac, which buys pre-owned Apple devices from schools and enterprises and refurbishes them, donated 50 iPads with 128gb of storage and Wifi+Cellular capabilities.


The WFF was established by former Chicago Cubs pitcher and his wife Sarah in 2011 with the vision of improving the lives of Chicago children and inspiring others to join the mission. In 2014 the foundation launched an after-school mentoring program called Pitch In for students at Lawndale Community Academy (LCA) and later expanded to Richard Yates Elementary School, Bernhard Moos Elementary, and Charles Sumner Math and Science Community Academy.

Pitch In fosters high-quality mentoring relationships for students in grades 4-8 with supportive adults and students to ensure successful transitions between middle and high school.
