{Fort Worth, Texas}

a creative reuse resource for the community and the classroom

 

We pick up surplus materials from local companies and events, turning trash into a tax-deductible donation.

We match and deliver donated materials to educators and nonprofits at no cost to the recipient.

We curate and lead curriculum-enhancing, budget-friendly reuse projects.

The Welman Project’s mission is to connect schools and nonprofits with the community in ways that ignite creativity, environmental activism, and social responsibility.

We serve as a free resource, distributing surplus materials from local companies for creative reuse in the classroom and beyond.
