GEAR BAGS: Welder's Starter Kit

With the support of the Cook Foundation, TRADESTRONG will be awarding as many as 30-50 scholarships this year...just a modest jump from the first 5 scholarships that were awarded in 2023.  We are growing! This year's scholarships will include $2500, $5000, and beautiful Gear Bags, such as this Welder's Starter Kit, stuffed with quality tools, equipment, and a gift card to Loomis Ace Hardware. These awesome kits will be sponsored by TRADESTRONG, in partnership with donors that Funded the Need at last year's Inaugural Cook Foundation Golf & Cornhole Fundraiser, Loomis Ace Hardware, and MJB Welding Welding Supply. We are grateful for the wonderful industry support and the opportunity to help get so many students off on the right foot in their pursuit of a career in the trades.
