Repair Cafés are free community events where skilled volunteers lend their skills to residents who bring in their broken items for repair. Bring your clothing, small home appliances, small motor engines, jewelry or small electronics, and fixers will try to repair them or help you fix them. Attendees may bring one or two items each and must be present during the repair. Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried by one person, and do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, dirty or have a strong odor.
There are no guarantees an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more, but fixers will be available to diagnose problems and offer their best advice. Volunteers will provide free diagnosis and repair skills, and replacement parts may be available for sale at a low cost (i.e. cords, spark plugs). Attendees are encouraged to bring replacement parts (i.e. cords, buttons, spark plugs) specific to their broken item for fixers to use in the repair.
Scheduled events are:
· 6-8pm March 21, Clark County Habitat for Humanity Store, 10811 SE Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver
· 5:30-7:30pm May 25, Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St., Vancouver
