Fix-it Clinic (POSTPONED)
Our Fix-it Clinic on May 2, has been postponed due to concerns about COVID-19.
The Fix-it Clinic is a simple idea. Bring in an item in need of repair and our volunteer fixers will do their best to help you fix it for free. What kind of items can you bring? Toys, electronics, clothing, bicycles, small furniture/appliances, etc. Fix-it Clinics are a great way to build community while keeping usable items out of the landfill.
KIDS WELCOME: There will also be a station at the Fix-it Clinic where kids can help take apart and recycle unfixable items.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: If you are good at soldering, electronics repair, electrical repair, sewing, woodworking or general tinkering and you’d like to volunteer at the Fix-it Clinic, contact Kaileigh Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org or (928) 203-5112.
