Legacy Architectural Salvage Tool Drive

It all starts with having the right tools in the right hands. 

To help save history, one piece at a time, Legacy Architectural Salvage is holding a tool drive during the month of February! To donate new or gently used tools to our warehouse and wood shop, please stop by during business hours: Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9:00am-2:00pm, and Thursday from 9:00am-5:00pm.

Call 910.338.6443 to speak with Legacy’s Manager, Deb Helms, or Assistant Manager, Dawn Roy.
You can also email salvage@historicwilmington.org
