SEAC’s Tool Shed


SEAC has successfully obtained enough funding through the generosity of organizations like ESL, and our wonderful community, to launch 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.  

Our new home will be located at 1255 University Ave. We are looking forward to moving in in the beginning of the New Year!

We plan to start accepting donations the second week of January and are aiming to be open to the public 3/1/22!
