Tools Sought to Help Boost Non-Profits

Do you have an unused - or gently used - tool laying around? Donate it to help supply local charities during tool collection drives in September and October.

The Roswell Recycling Center and Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell will collect new and lightly used tools during two separate tool collection drive’s soon.

This new partnership is a first for North Fulton. The Atlanta Community ToolBank is the only nonprofit in greater Atlanta dedicated to equipping the charitable sector with the tools needed to implement a diverse range of community improvement projects. The ToolBank’s unique Tool Lending resource supports over 1,700 local service efforts annually, equipping almost 50,000 local volunteers for action and enabling fellow nonprofits to increase both frequency and scope of service.

“The Roswell Recycling Center is very excited to partner with the Roswell Kiwanis Club in their efforts to help the Atlanta Community ToolBank.  We enjoy being part of the community,” explains Janet Liberman, Environmental Programs manager for the city of Roswell.

The tool collection drive's will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15 and Oct. 20 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Center, 11570 Maxwell Road, Alpharetta. New and gently used tools will be accepted.
