After my husband passes away he left a garage full of tools. I have had many garage sales n posted on CL. I still have boxes full. What to do with now. Is there a company that would buy n take?

Call around to local churches that have Men's Ministries and let them know.

Where are you located?

Homeless shelters, battered women shelters all need tools.

My community has a tool lending "library". If yours does, they would also appreciate donations.

If you are a church goer---talk to your minister and ask if a young couple might have bought a house recently and needs some tools---

Make sure you set aside a basic tool set for yourself before getting rid of them.
