Hypothetically (or not so hypothetically), let’s say that your team was gifted a new workspace that gives you additional room. It’s a great opportunity and you can take most of your tools and toolboxes but not the furniture or computers.
Your team has 30 people on it plus several mentors.
What are your priorities?
What other things would be nice to have but can wait?
How do you raise the funds for this or get it donated on short notice?
I think it would be for (1) workbenches and chairs, plus shelving, computers and anything needed for safety
For (2) a fridge
For (3) Lowes no longer does open grants and Home Depot seems to have steered there grant program towards veterans. Are there any FIRST-friendly national chains that one might approach for donations or deep discounts on stuff like this?
