The Charlotte ToolBank is committed to the safety of our member agencies,
volunteers, staff, and our greater community.
Tool Lending & Cleaning Procedures
In support of the North Carolina Executive Order 195, which runs through March 26, 2021 at 5pm, and any relevant previous Executive Orders, the ToolBank will continue to limit tool and special event item lending to events and projects of no more than 25 individuals indoors and 50 individuals outdoors during the same time period. Projects and events that have staggered session times, multiple locations or are permitted under the current Executive Order will be allowed. We will continue to serve by appointment only. Our staff will confirm and schedule pick ups and returns in advance.
When a borrowed item is returned to the ToolBank, it is quarantined for three days. After the quarantine period, we thoroughly sanitize all items before they are available to another member agency.
PPE & New Inventory Items
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, including Restore Global, She Built This City, Atrium Health, and UPS, the ToolBank has washable face masks, face shields, ear savers, and hand sanitizer available to our member agencies at no charge. These items can be requested by placing a tool order or by calling our office at 704.469.5800.
We have added no contact thermometers to our inventory and are actively working to acquire additional items to assist our member agencies with safe and enhanced operations. To donate any of the following wish list items, please contact Maureen Krueger.
