Westford, MA  – Westford House, a Genesis HealthCare Skilled Nursing Facility, announced today that on Tuesday April 15th they  held their First Annual Food Drive to benefit the Westford Council on Aging (COA) Food Pantry. The COA provides support to local seniors in Westford and a food pantry for the needy throughout the state.  Westford House formed teams for a friendly competition to see which team could collect the most donations by weight in pounds.  The competition began on April 1st and the winning weigh-in was on April 15th.  Thank you to all who coordinated and participated in this event.  The total weight of the food collected was over 514lbs.

Daniel Doherty OTR/L Rehabilitation Program Director at Westford House led this event.  When asked what made you do this, he said, “It was spontaneous.  It fits in with our Mission to improve the lives we touch through the delivery of high-quality health care and everyday compassion.”

Lifelong resident and former Westford Town Hall employee Helena “Mickey” Crocker was present to receive the donation.  Mickey is the founder of the Westford Council on Aging Food Pantry, Golden Age Club and was the first Veteran’s Agent.  Mickey stated that before the food donations, she would give out gift certificates to Veterans in need of food.  It all started with a grey filing cabinet when working at Westford Town Hall. 


Genesis HealthCare is dedicated to improving the lives we touch through the delivery of high-quality healthcare and everyday compassion.
