SEAC’s Tool Shed


SEAC has been busy developing our new community program, SEAC’s Tool Shed.  This program, inspired by the successful (and awesome) The Tool Library in Buffalo, NY, will provide accessibility to tools to any resident, business, or organization in the Greater Rochester Area, for a small annual fee ($25 per year for the basic level).  Tools are expensive and shouldn’t be an obstacle to anyone wanting to do repairs on their home, business, or in their community. 

Many people do not purchase tools because either they cannot afford them or simply do not wish to pay for something they will use once, maybe twice, in their lifetime.  This program removes both of those hurdles, giving access to tools to those who need and want it.  Community groups looking to engage in Clean Sweeps, neighborhood beautification projects and the like, need look no further than SEAC’s Tool Shed to assist with their needs.  Low-income homeowners wanting to complete repairs on their home should be able to do so without tool cost barriers holding them back.  Independent contractors looking to earn income and hone their skills should not miss out because they can’t afford all the tools for the job.  

Currently we are looking for a home for this project in our service area.  We are hoping to secure a space in the next few months.  Once we get the premises settled, we will begin accepting tool donations from the community, catalogue and inventorying them, and building out our online portal so people can see what is available. 

SEAC has applied for grant funding from several agencies and will use some of our limited capital to move this project to fruition, but we do need your help.  We are putting out this CALL TO ACTION to all our residents and community partners. 

Please help us make this project a reality; every dollar you donate helps us create this amazing program!

Thank you for support!
