Facility maintenance pro by trade, world changer by spirit – Lorraine Lombardi is truly a renaissance woman. An impromptu day volunteering for a home repair agency in Atlanta over 8 years ago led to a love of using the blue tools and sustained commitment to the ToolBank cause.
“It’s a win-win,” she explains. “No other nonprofit helps so many people.” Her service has included stints at the Tool Rush Sale, mega tool painting, warehouse remodeling at the new facility and now, post-retirement, she’s graciously co-managing the Atlanta ToolBank repair shop alongside fellow volunteer Ron “The Professor” Sargent.
Recognized as Volunteer of The Year in 2012, Lorraine is beloved by staff and volunteers for her contagious smile and can-do attitude. A resident of Decatur, GA she especially enjoys the ToolBank impact in her own backyard – with 2 new community gardens, over 40 home repair projects and more than 15 community clean-ups completed in just the past 10 months!
