ToolBank USA is championing a national movement to provide an abundance of high-quality tools to non-profits and their volunteers through the replication of the ToolBank program. ToolBank USA provides the business model, training, infrastructure and systems support to ToolBanks in local communities, allowing each ToolBank to focus on core functions of customer service, accuracy, and professionalism. In addition, STANLEY has helped ToolBank USA launch their ToolBank Disaster Services. This mobile unit is stocked and ready to deploy anywhere in the country where a natural disaster occurs, eliminating the distance between a disaster and the nearest ToolBank.
In 2015, we committed $1 million to support ToolBank USA's national expansion plan. This donation is about helping a strong, smart organization to bring its phenomenal work to even more communities across the country. We immediately saw the power of the ToolBank mission and the impact that this organization can have on communities throughout the world. We have been continually impressed by the ToolBank's innovative tool-lending system and we are proud to continue our support of this important organization.
