Get household items fixed for free and learn valuable repair skills at a Fix-It Clinic.
At Fix-It Clinics, residents bring in small household appliances, clothing, electronics, mobile devices, toys, bikes, and more and receive free guided assistance from volunteers with repair skills to disassemble, troubleshoot and fix their items.
Fix-It Clinics teach valuable troubleshooting and basic repair skills, build community connections and reduce the number of repairable objects that are thrown in the trash.
Be a Fix-It Clinic Volunteer!
If you can troubleshoot repairs for broken items, consider volunteering at a Fix-It Clinic. Volunteer fixers who have skills in repairing computers, cell phones, soldering, electronics repair, small appliances, toys, bikes, sewing, and general tinkering are essential to making the clinics successful. Volunteers should bring their own tools, sewing machines, glues, and any supplies you think will be helpful.
You must be able to carry in your own item (no large or oversized items). Please bring manuals and any parts you think may be useful to fixing your item. Each clinic may vary according to the skills of the volunteers. We will post their areas of expertise on our website and in our Farmers Market newsletter one week prior to the clinic.
