Weiler Abrasives Makes Workshop for Warriors Donation
February 16, 2022
Weiler Abrasives has announced its continued support of the mission of Workshops for Warriors with a donation of $25,000. The nonprofit school trains and certifies veterans, wounded warriors and transitioning service members in CNC, welding, computer-aided drafting (CAD) and other technical trades, as well as helping to place them in advanced manufacturing careers.
Workshops for Warriors core values focus on human dignity, a commitment to those who have served, patriotism, integrity and teamwork. Since 2008, the school has focused on rebuilding America’s advanced manufacturing talent workforce and supporting transitioning service members and veterans to enter viable American advanced manufacturing careers. This year, the nonprofit will celebrate its 1,000th graduate and currently has graduates working in every state in the nation.
“Weiler Abrasives has long believed in the importance of the Workshops for Warriors mission,” says Nate Schmid, director of global marketing, Weiler Abrasives Group. “We are pleased to be able to provide support to help veterans gain valuable skills, establish themselves in the technical trades and earn a consistent livelihood.”
In addition to financial support, Weiler Abrasives has supplied in-kind donations of abrasive and safety products to Workshops for Warriors since 2014.
“Weiler Abrasives has been a steadfast supporter of our organization. Their financial support and industry-leading products and commitment to veterans have helped to make our program a huge success,” says Lyle Palm, dean of welding and facilities head at Workshops for Warriors.
