Freret Neighborhood Center is partnering with NOLA TimeBank to create the New Orleans Uptown Tool Lending Library with an eye towards equipping New Orleanians with the supplies and skills they need to fix their homes, yards, and more. Thanks to a kind donation from Ingram Micro, we have developed an inventory of tools that support grass-cutting and yard maintenance. The next phase of this project consists of collecting tools that will help members to perform home repairs. To take this step, we need your help!
Through a partnership with ioby.org and Center for a New American Dream, a fundraiser celebrating the birth of the library will be held on September 8th from 5-8pm at Gasa Gasa (4920 Freret St.)! All contributions will benefit this new project, and donated funds will be matched dollar for dollar up to $4,000.
