Friends Giving Service Project to Benefit First Responders

As part of our Friends Giving initiative, WCL plans to assemble and deliver 140 Thanksgiving-themed personal meals to thank Police, Fire, DPW, Community Center, Town Hall, Council on Aging, and Library workers who do so much for the town of Weston. We would normally prepare all of the food ourselves, but due to Covid-19 restrictions we are now purchasing prepared foods and facilitating delivery. Please consider a nominal donation to this cause – as a rule of thumb, the participation fee for our Friends Giving get together is usually $15. Since there was no fee because we gathered virtually this year, perhaps you would consider donating this amount to the Friends Giving service project instead. Whether you choose to donate $15 or $150, your donation will help us thank those who make our community a better place to live – something for which we all can be truly grateful.

Winter Festival/Tree Lighting Fund

WCL’s signature event is the town-wide Winter Festival, established in 2018 to kick off the organization’s centennial celebration and to foster our legacy of Building Community Since 1919. What started as a simple tree lighting idea morphed into a fun-filled, activity packed afternoon for the entire community. This year, due to the pandemic, the Winter Festival will scale back to its original concept. A simple tree lighting is planned to continue the momentum and spirit of the Winter Festival until it can return in its full tradition.

Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund provides merit and need-based scholarships to graduating Weston High School students. In 1930, the scholarship program began by awarding $150 to one Weston High School senior. Since then, WCL has donated over $1,000,000 to graduating Weston High School students. 

General Philanthropy Fund

Beyond scholarship, the WCL provides support, in both time and money, to many charitable organizations and to critical projects for the town. Past donations have substantially improved town buildings such as the Josiah Smith Tavern and Barn, the Weston Public Library, and the Community Center. Charities which WCL will support in 2020-21 include Weston CARES Fund, Dignity Matters, The Greater Boston Food Bank, Council on Aging Food Bank, and REACH Beyond Domestic Violence.
