Chainsaws And Wood Chippers At The Baltimore Community ToolBank

Baltimore Community ToolBank

At the Baltimore Community ToolBank, nonprofits can access almost any tool--from a chainsaw to a wood chipper--and expertise! Executive director Noah Smock explains that renting tools is a small element of the story: sustainability is built into the mission and collaboration is key.

And we meet longtime ToolBank devotee Chenire Carter, senior manager of development and communications for Higher Achievement, a nonprofit working to close the opportunity gap for middle-school kids. She calls the ToolBank her 'secret weapon.'
