Join us as we collaborate with our fellow nonprofits to showcase monthly awareness topics such as recycling, safety, women’s history, earth day and human rights. Whether at the ToolBank or on location, these spotlight events will highlight and inform in a fun, relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

You’ll build your own emergency preparedness crate to hold the FEMA-suggested essential items we’ll provide you with, such as an emergency radio, flashlight, first aid kit and more. You will also put together a kit that will be donated to a family in need.

Thank you for joining us at our previous trainings!  Here are a few highlights:

Canned Food Month

In February we partnered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank for Canned Food Month and built wine racks.  Each participant brought three canned food goods to donate to the Food Bank and then took home their very own wine rack that they built.

International Women’s Month:

In March we partnered with Mentoring A Girl In Construction (MAGIC) for International Women’s Month.  Participants learned basic home repair skills and then packed tool kits for the girls participating in the MAGIC program.
