Richmond Community ToolBank General Warehouse and Tool Maintenance
Please join the Richmond Community ToolBank for an exciting volunteer opportunity.
The Richmond 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. We provide tools to enhance the charitable sector’s capacity to serve, facilitating hands-on volunteerism in the greater Richmond area.
The Richmond ToolBank maintains an 10,000 sq ft warehouse in Scott’s Addition 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.
The Richmond Community ToolBank thrives on volunteerism. As a small, staff, we welcome volunteers of all experience levels to serve alongside us in the warehouse, so we can better serve our non-profit partner organizations. Volunteer tasks include pulling tool orders, restocking tool orders, cleaning/branding/sharpening tools, general tool maintenance, tidying up the warehouse, sorting and taking inventory of overstocked tools, and more. We welcome individuals, repeat volunteers, and groups no matter the experience or skill level.
Tools and supplies are provided. Volunteers should wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothing for moving around a warehouse. Parking is located in the rear parking lot, parallel to the interstate.
