Second Chance Tools


Second Chance Tools is a volunteer run store managed by the Parkway Center.
This store sells used tools at a lower price than many hardware stores. It’s perfect for everyone!
The proceeds from this store support the programs, services, and mission of the Parkway Center which is:
” To provide programs & services to individuals 50+ empowering them to live healthy and vibrant lives.”

We also accept donations of used tools.
If you are downsizing or have tools you no longer use please consider donating to Second Chance Tools as all proceeds will benefit the programs of the Parkway Center! If you have items you would like to donate but are unable to bring them to the store, we may be able to assist you by having one of our volunteers pick up your donations. Since it will be volunteers picking up donations, we ask that the following guidelines are met in order for us to send someone to pick them up:

1. Items must be ready to go, and packed in boxes if necessary.

2. Only items that we sell at the tool store can be taken.

3. All items must be on a first floor level, volunteers cannot retrieve donations from basements or attics.

4. Our volunteers cannot clean or pack any area of your residence.

5. Items must weigh a reasonable amount, volunteers are unable to carry excessively heavy items.

6. The amount of donations being picked up must be reasonable as our volunteers use their own vehicles.
