Westwood Community Chest

Westwood Community Chest (WCC) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to helping Westwood residents in need through temporary financial assistance. The organization is run by a volunteer board and works with several town organizations to ensure that our community members get the help they need. WCC receives funds from private donors, businesses and town organizations and distributes them to help families in need through a confidential application process.

Westwood Community Chest helps individuals and families facing financial difficulties by awarding funds towards basic needs such as medical expenses, utility payments and housing payments. WCC also awards camperships, which are scholarships to summer camp for school-aged kids. Camperships provide wonderful opportunities for physical, social and emotional growth to Westwood children whose families could not otherwise afford summer programs. All funds are distributed directly to the company or camp, not the individual applicant. Through our community resource liaisons, additional resources may be made available to those in need.
