The Charlotte ToolBank is committed to the safety of our member agencies,
volunteers, staff, and our greater community.

Tool Lending & Cleaning Procedures

On Friday May 14, 2021 at 1:30pm, Executive Order 215 (FAQ) took effect. With the restrictions on gathering sizes lifted, the ToolBank has removed all borrowing limits due to event/project size. If changes are made on or before this order expires on June 11, 2021 at 5pm, we will adjust accordingly.

For organizations who wish to still provide PPE at their events, we have many options still available.

The ToolBank will continue to serve by appointment only.  Our staff will confirm and schedule pick ups and returns in advance. Masks are still required when visitors come to the ToolBank.

When a borrowed item is returned to the ToolBank, 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  The Ford Foundation, and UPS, the ToolBank has washable face masks, disposable 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.
