About the event
Volunteer during one of our Micro Shelter Builds at The Baltimore ToolBank. National Women Build Week has come and gone but we need to keep up the momentum! All volunteers of all types and walks of life are invited to participate!
Free, unrestricted parking is available on the 1200 block of Wicomico Street, directly in front of ToolBank entrance.
Be mindful not to parking in loading dock driveways.
Event registration begins at 10 am, please do not plan to arrive before 9:45 am unless asked. There will be a safety overview at 10:30am. All volunteers must be present for safety overview.
If possible, I'd suggest bringing these items:
Dress comfortably and Wear layers (during winter months) the warehouse is NOT controlled climate
Safety tools and equipment- Hammer, knee pads, glasses or goggles , and gloves if possible
(other optional supplies) Ear plugs, speed square, a water bottle , tool belt, paint brush or paint roller, and pencil
We have these things available but do not guarantee the best fit. Comfortable, well fitting layered clothing is suggested. The weather is unpredictable so please wear layers, we will be in a warehouse. Clothes should fit well to allow ease of movement yet not be baggy. Baggy clothes can get caught in machinery. Your clothes will get dirty- maybe beyond repair, so wear clothes that can be ruined (glue, paint, snags), if you can. Comfortable closed toe shoes or boots.
For the most part, we will be on our feet most of the day so please make sure you have comfortable shoes. We will have water available in jugs near our work area, but we don’t want to use plastic cups.
Shoot us an email if you have any questions!
