The Welman Project

Through The Welman Project, we are tackling two big issues in our community - 1) waste output generated by businesses and 2) lack of resources in our schools - with one innovative solution: creative reuse. We collect surplus materials from companies and distribute those items to classrooms for free, while working one-on-one with teachers to provide repurpose and repair alternatives to purchasing new supplies. The result is a community where waste is reduced, the burden on teachers is lessened, and creativity and ingenuity thrive in the classroom.
