Tool donations

Black Women Build- Baltimore accepts new and gently used tools

Tools (and labor) are how we deconstruct and then reconstruct our homes. Hand, battery operated, and electric tools are always welcome. We appreciate tools for cleaning up the yard and outdoor space as well – shovels, rakes, pruners, loppers, and even a wheelbarrow. And as we age out our tools, they will be given to the new homeowner so she can begin to build her tool chest. In this way, she’ll be able to continue working on her home, and take on small projects for others.

Material donations

Black Women Build – Baltimore accepts new materials

The homes we rehabilitate need a lot of love and a lot of work. Mostly shells, these homes need lumber for support and walls, flooring, plumbing, heating/cooling, electrical, and everything in between to make this house a home. Each house has a kitchen, bath, and a couple of bedrooms to make cozy. Your material donation in the form of the tangible item or a gift card will help make a huge difference for us to be able to complete these homes.
