Bridging The Gap Tool Lending Shed

Bridging The Gap Tool Lending Shed provides the Greater Kansas City community access to tools, empowering our neighbors to build and maintain a sustainable, thriving community.

Groups can save expenses while completing many types of community-coordinated projects, such as garden installation, neighborhood improvement, maintenance, and beautification. We lend out free of charge an ever-growing inventory of tools. View our full inventory to decide what you need for your next project.


Tools are limited and available on a first come, first served basis.

Once you are ready to checkout tools, follow these simple steps:

  • Once we receive your request, you can expect to hear from us within 2-3 business days to confirm that the tools are available on the date requested. Please note: the completion of this form does not guarantee that the tools are available.

  • Tools can be picked up and dropped off Wednesday - Saturday between 10:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Deramus Recycling Center at 4707 Deramus Avenue, KCMO 64120.

  • You must bring a copy of the confirmation receipt in order to check-out tools. Tools will NOT be released without a copy of the confirmation email.

After your project, please clean all tools, return them at the prearranged time. Once you have returned the tools, we will contact you for information regarding your clean-up event. We need this information in order to continue to receive funding for this program.
