WASA helps people and organizations by filling in gaps where we can. None are more important than the Westborough Food Pantry who help people survive hard times by providing a well-rounded array of foods for their weekly selection and offer, as well, some basic non-food items such as paper products and personal care products on a rotation basis. It is inspirational for WASA to serve as an annual conduit for the Westborough community and receive thousands of pounds of food to support those in our community that are less fortunate. WASA works with local grocery stores Roche Brothers, Stop and Shop Speedway and Stop and Shop Lyman Street to ask patrons if they could pick up needed supplies. Harvey's provides transportation and allows us to gather cash donations from their facility.
The end of summer provides the best weather to be outside in Westborough. Warm days, cool nights and no spring rains. Come out and play golf with WASA to help support the people and organizations in Westborough. Each year we fill up the course, have several contests and have a banquet at the end where we get together and each tell tales of perfect golf shots! Reach out early as this event fills up quickly. If you're not able to attend and would like to sponsor, please let us know as there are various ways to sponsor the event!

Dance the night away with friends and do it all for a great cause - the kids of Westborough!
Friday Meat Raffles
Every Other Friday 6-9pm
Someone brilliant once said, "Meat is heavenly, right? And, I mean, who doesn't like a good raffle? Hey… how about a MEAT RAFFLE!" No one knows exactly when it started, but Westborough has eaten it up for over 50 years. Two Friday's a month WASA members offer up $1 tickets for the chance to win one VERY big hunk of meat. The winner is drawn at random on Friday night LIVE at the Central House, so come join in the fun!
Meat Raffle tickets are available every Friday night at Westborough's favorite establishments including The Central House, Cheng Du, JP's, Cold Harbor Brewery, Westborough House of Pizza and the Westborough VFW Post.

Most people agree that a Win-Win is the best scenario. We do one better with our calendar raffle because it is a Win-Win-and (possibly) Win-again! Every June we run our Calendar Raffle Fund Raiser. In the weeks leading up to June 1st WASA members sell entries for the fundraiser. Each entry is added to the "hat" and we select a winner for each day of the month. Best of all - the entry is returned to the hat and is eligible to Win-Win-and-Win-Again!
We do have internal bragging rights on who sells the most entries - so please join in, help us to help others and get a WASA member(s) closer to those bragging rights.
WASA is proud to run the Annual Westborough Ski Swap. It doesn't matter if you are outfitting a new family, trying to keep up with growing kids or if you have equipment that could help out someone new. All will get value from the Biggest and Best ski swap in the area.
