HOUSTON, Tx. -- Houston Community Toolbank is celebrating its grand opening in Houston by showing off their massive tool warehouse, full of the supplies they're ready to lend out at a moment's notice for volunteer events around the Bayou City.

In case of an emergency or disaster, a mobile unit will bring the supplies to the location.

Ken Smiley, Houston Community Toolbank Board President, said, "What happens is you have a few tools and many volunteers standing around, waiting to do the work. If we can supply every one of those volunteers, that means the work gets done a lot quicker"

If you decide to volunteer, then you aren't going to be standing around empty handed.
