Wellfare is excited to announce the opening of its brand new headquarters at Industry City in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
The new 6,500 square foot space will enable Wellfare to significantly scale the Better Box program to more neighborhoods reaching more families. Additionally, Wellfare will be able to host fundraising events, create a content production studio and consolidate their office needs.
Since Wellfare's launch in 2021, the team has been scrappy utilizing a third-party logistics provider and several co-working spaces to make ends meet. But with the popularity of the Better Box program only growing, the time was now to make the leap and move into a warehouse facility of their own.
Industry City is an industrial park located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn with over 6 million square feet housing startups, emerging enterprises, restaurants and more. Conveniently located near the D/N/R stop at 36th Street, the location is perfect for Wellfare as the organization continues to rely heavily on volunteers and corporate partners to help pack boxes.
Stay tuned in the coming months to check out the new volunteer schedule and upcoming events Wellfare will be hosting from the HQ. In the meantime, here's a quick tour of the space from founder Cole Riley:
