With access to ToolBank tools, partners like Madisonville Education Assistance Center (MEAC), whose mission is to offer access to education, services, and engagement that enable all neighbors to thrive, reach self-sufficiency and independence, have been able to continue distributing food to those who need it most, while keeping safety in mind!
Jen Baker, Executive Director, MEAC explains, “One of the reasons we were able to continuously provide basic needs services was because we partner with the ToolBank. We moved our food distribution outside and used ToolBank’s tents to keep us cool and dry and ToolBank’s generator allowed food to stay cold and accessible. Additionally, we borrowed wet vacs and pumps which literally helped us escape major damage when we had a flood in the middle of a pandemic!”
