Council on Aging Pantry Food Drive


The COA is the heart and soul of Weston's elderly community. This February we are supporting the COA food pantry. It is a wonderful way to support our community, in times of need. There are around 100 visits to the pantry each year which can be a lifeline to many residents, who are having monthly fixed income struggles or who experience a sudden change in circumstance such as an unexpected job loss. 


You can donate in the following ways:

  • Check donations: can be mailed to or dropped off at: Weston COA, 20 Alphabet Lane, Weston, MA 02493 (please note food pantry donations are from WCL)
  • Grocery gift cards: purchase a $25 gift card from Market Basket, Hannafords or Stop & Shop and mail it to or drop it off at the Weston COA; use this link to sign up
  • Shopping yourself: sign-up for the supplies using this link and drop off directly to COA

Questions? Contact Adrian Proll, WCL Service/Outreach Chair, at abproll5@gmail.com.



Thank you for your ongoing support of WCL's philanthropic endeavors. We are all in this together so let's make a difference!


WCL also supports: REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, Dignity Matters, the Greater Boston Food Bank, and the Weston Cares Fund

100 Years of Commitment and Service to the Weston Community

WCL delivers in challenging times…
  • In 1925 a milk program was established for needy children in the public schools
  • This was followed by support for a hot lunch program in 1929
  • WCL awarded its first academic scholarship of $150 in 1930 
  • In 1939 members sewed and knitted garments for refugees
  • A $3000 Welfare Fund in 1940 was not insignificant given the average price of a home at the time was $2600 
  • In 1942 the Clothing Exchange began and remained robust through 2018
  • A War Scholarship Fund for Nurses in 1945 was right for the times
  • Events of 2001 prompted contribution to the American Red Cross Disaster Fund
  • Hurricane Relief funds were granted in 2011

And in better times WCL is always there for the community…

  • In 1976 WCL contributed $65K for building improvements at the Josiah Smith Tavern
  • In 1984 it funded the $20K kitchen renovation in the Barn
  • Further landscape and building improvements of $17K were made in 1987
  • Over $35K was given by WCL to help build the Weston Public Library in 1989
  • Academic scholarships have been awarded every year since 1930
  • In 2018 the Winter Festival was created to bring the community together 
  • Total scholarship and community project contribution by WCL over time exceeds $1.3 million
