A growing number of local businesses are starting to get in on the project.
The city of Cleveland plans to start using a program to distribute materials for preschoolers, preschoolers and families at local schools.
“The program is intended to address the shortage of construction materials in the community,” said Amanda Fennell, a spokeswoman for the city.
“The city is partnering with a local manufacturer to supply materials to school districts, and we’re looking to partner with more local companies to provide more affordable, durable materials to local businesses.”
The program, called “Build and Let Build,” will distribute the materials and help school districts get them to schools and provide other educational services.
For instance, the materials will be provided to the school building, a playground, a library and more.
The materials will help the city’s preschool program staff with construction projects.
Fennell said the city is working to get the materials into classrooms, but she would not say how many students are enrolled in the program.
The city has been in the business of making and distributing materials for years, but it’s the first time the city has given the material to local schools, she said.
More information about the program and to get involved are on the city website, which also lists the schools participating.
