First of all, thank you for all you do for your students and the community. Because you do so much, we really want to help!

“Free stuff?! Like what?”

Our mission is reuse, so while we do receive some donations of new surplus items, the majority of our inventory is used. We have a constantly changing selection of:

  • art materials
  • office supplies
  • furniture
  • decor
  • building materials
  • teacher resources
  • and all sorts of stuff that can be repurposed for STEAM projects.

We also have a collection of event and theatre items available to borrow!

While we may not have exactly what you need right now, we may be able to find it later, or help you figure out something we do have that you can use instead. Let us know about special projects, events or lessons planned. We love to help brainstorm materials!


“Do I qualify?”

- Educators: We provide free materials to all staff currently employed at any accredited public or charter school in the North Texas area. Staff at nonprofit private schools that file an annual 990 form also qualify. (Nonprofit private school educators - please contact us before visiting to check your school's eligibility.) All materials received must be for use only at the school you work at, not for personal use, resale, or use at a different school or organization. Please bring your school ID badge to your appointment.

- PTA/PTO: The PTA/PTO at any accredited public, charter, or eligible nonprofit private school may request a membership card HERE to receive access to shop at Welman on behalf of the school. One card will be issued per organization, and the card must be shown at each visit.

- Nonprofits & Government: Staff of 501(c)3 organizations that file an annual 990 form, and staff of government entities, may apply HERE for access to free materials for use at their organization. (No personal use or resale.) Please apply for membership before scheduling an appointment.

- Due to funding limitations, we are unable to give materials to for-profit schools or companies, in-home educators, or to anyone for personal use.

By accepting materials from The Welman Project, you agree that they will only be used for the benefit of a qualifying organization, and will not be used or sold for personal gain. Violation of this agreement will result in revocation of your membership.


“Got it. Now how do I get this stuff?”

Due to COVID-19, we are currently open by appointment only. Only one person per time slot - please do not bring children, partners, or coworkers. Shoppers must wear a mask at all times. Gloves are available upon request.

If you're looking for furniture or other unique items (not basic supplies), please fill out the form below, and we'll contact you if we can fill your request.




“Where is this place?”

Our building is located at 4201 Trail Lake Drive, 76109, but please enter Welman Project in your GPS, as typing in the address leads you to the wrong place. We’re at the back of the First Congregational Church parking lot, and the entrance is on Manderly Place.


“I have another question.”

We love questions! Call or text us at 817-809-6389, or send an email to
