SE Tool Library Volunteers Needed

The Southeast Portland Tool Library (SEPTL) is a free community resource that provides home and business owners and tenants with hand and power tools needed to perform simple maintenance, tend to yards and gardens and build projects, while along the way meeting and sharing with neighbors. The non-profit depends on volunteers to run and they are currently looking for more individuals to make sure they have enough hands to operate.
The two general volunteer areas SEPTL needs help in are working shifts and volunteering behind the scenes. During their open hours (Tuesday and Thursday 5:30-7 pm and Saturday 9 am-noon) volunteers help people check in tools they have rented and check out tools. Shifts are approximately two hours; Saturday open hours are split between two shifts. Volunteers are not required to have any special knowledge of tools, only the willingness to help out and connect with their neighbors. Beginner volunteers always have an experienced volunteer and/or the Volunteer Coordinator to help teach and support them.
Behind the scenes volunteers help repair tools, take tool photos, maintain the seed library, fundraise, serve on the Board of Directors and more. With the variety of areas, there is something for anyone interested in becoming involved with SEPTL.
For more information, visit septl.org or email volunteers@septl.org. SEPTL is located in the basement of Hinson Church, at the corner of SE Salmon St. and SE 20th Ave.
