ToolBank Disaster Services:

Hurricane Harvey and Irma Response

Give Now to Support ToolBank Disaster Services

A Statement from Patty Russart, Our CEO, About Toolbank’s Response to the Hurricane Harvey and Irma Events

Friends, Colleagues, and Supporters:

In response to the devastating hurricane events in Texas and the surrounding area, the ToolBank Network has responded. We are working around the clock to provide support to the people of Texas from Aransas Pass to Houston. Our Houston ToolBank has loaned hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of tools to volunteers in the Houston area. Our ToolBank Disaster Services mobile unit is on the ground providing tools to our partner organizations to help them with the clean-up and recovery efforts.

Now that Irma has hit, we are preparing to deploy with our partner organizations to the hardest hit areas in Florida and Georgia. Our Atlanta ToolBank has already begun loaning tools to the efforts on the Georgia coast, and some of their tools are already on their way to the US Virgin Islands to help there.

ToolBank Disaster Services currently only has one disaster services trailer, and it is deployed to Texas and is expected to be there through the end of the year. With the support of our generous donors, we expect to source, configure, and equip a second disaster services trailer and deploy it in time to help the people of Florida.

At ToolBank, we support nonprofits by loaning them the tools and equipment they need to do their work efficiently and safely. We are committed to helping the hurricane victims in Texas, Florida, and beyond. There are other hurricanes in the Atlantic, and we are watching them closely.

We are humbled and grateful for the support from our wonderful partners, both cash and in-kind. The list includes Stanley Black & Decker, Home Depot, Cox Automotive, UPS, Ford, our generous Board members, individual donors, and countless others. As we come together to make a difference in the communities hit hard by this event, we could not do it without you.

We need your help to continue to support the people in Texas and prepare for the hurricane on the east coast. You can give here. Thank you all for your support.

With Gratitude:
Patty Russart
