Blog : Community Toolbox's New August Hours

By Clay | Jul 15, 2014 | in

Community Toolbox, a Portsmouth non-profit who strives to build a safe and healthy homes for everyone, has new hours starting this August. Their current, regular hours will remain the same, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Starting on August 6, through the remainder of the month, Community Toolbox will remain open until 6 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Community Toolbox operates under the belief that homeowners shouldn't be forced to choose between paying for home repairs, buying groceries or paying their mortgage. This mindset is why Community Toolbox has started their Fix-It Program along with their two other supporting programs, the Retail Outlet and their Deconstruction Service. Together these three programs aim to improve and the living conditions for people struggling in the community.

At the core of Community Toolbox is their Fix-It Program - a volunteer based service that provides qualifying residents within 30 minutes of Portsmouth the necessary repairs for their homes. Each job is done correctly and up to code including; grab bar installation, small electrical jobs, accessibility fixes and more.

The Retail Outlet funds Community Toolbox's Fix-It and DeConstruction programs. Open to the public, the Retail Outlet allows individuals to purchase new or reclaimed building materials such as cabinets, doors, windows, tile, appliances and welcome donations from contractors and individuals.

In addition to donations, Community Toolbox stocks the Retail Outlet with items obtained through their Deconstruction Program. Available to both homeowners and contractors, the Deconstruction Program is a team of professional, fully-insured volunteers who, for a small fee, remove items like cabinets and kitchenware from project sites to be sold at deep discounts at the Retail Outlet. This keeps unnecessary waste out of landfills and funds the Fix-It program. It also offers contractors a tax-deduction for donations.

So if you're looking for the right household items to complete your next project, need help installing an appliance, or just looking to help both the environment and a great cause, check out Community Toolbox!
