Tool Drives are designed to help our teams get the equipment they need to sustain projects long-term. Many of the tools that people have laying around the garage or old ones that have placed are ideal second-hand options for our volunteers and schools.
When organizing a tool drive, be creative where you look. Start with simple social media posts, text/call friends or family. Then look at community forums like Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Freecycle, and others. You’d be surprised what options you will find.
You know what they say, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
Once you have completed the tool drive, message us and we will coordinate a pick-up/drop-off location at the earliest convenience.
