Neighborhood groups can borrow tools

The Phoenix Community ToolBank is a nonprofit tool-lending program that provides fellow not-for-profit organizations with year-round access to an inventory of tools for use in volunteer projects and for facility and grounds maintenance.

The Phoenix ToolBank maintains a 5,000-square-foot warehouse just off I-10 at 40th Street and an inventory comprised of more than 200 different types of tools and equipment in volumes large enough to equip thousands of volunteers at a time. Access to ToolBank tools eliminates the need for agencies to incur the expense of purchasing, repairing, and storing tools, reducing the costs associated with service projects and allowing these agencies to focus more of their resources on their mission.

ToolBank is embarking on its second year of tool lending under the board leadership of Arthur Korupczynski, who shared, “Our Phoenix ToolBank is at an exciting stage in its progress and has proven to be a great asset to our community in its first year. Our future looks bright.

“Phoenix Community ToolBank is looking forward to another successful year of deploying blue tools into the local communities to support nonprofits, schools, neighborhood associations, and government departments to do more, building more and be more,” Korupczynski added.
