This website provides:
1. Westwood Community Chest Information Sheet
2. WCC Application for Financial Award

If you are not able to print an application, you can pick up printed applications at several locations around town (see About Us for a list of locations). All applications are completely confidential. We will notify you within two weeks after we receive your completed application with attached bills or estimates.
Please know that we do not give out cash directly to any individual. Rather, we pay the bill on your behalf – it is for that reason that we ask that you include the bill (or a copy of the bill) in your application.
