TOOL SHARE LIBRARY FUNDING BOOST
The Upwey Township group will receive a much needed funding boost to kickstart their own tool share library thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
A $5000 investment from the Labor Government will help the Upwey Township Group expand their tool share service.
The tool share library is to be a place where locals can borrow high-quality equipment to take on home improvement projects.
Members of the community will volunteer at the facility, offering to share their valuable skills to people learning to get handy.
The Victorian Government’s investment follows local community fundraising, via a Go Fund Me page.
Quotes attributable to the Member for Monbulk James Merlino
“Tool libraries operate all over the world and give the community the opportunity to share tools they might not be able to afford, or only use once.”
“Volunteers are the unsung heroes of our community and I am very proud to give them the support they deserve.”
