Can you fix things, do you have an environmental conscience? We are looking for "fixers" for our Repair Café.  Customers bring items from home that need fixing; small appliances, computers, clothing, jewelry, toys and more. We are in search of volunteers who would be willing to attempt to fix items. Our goal is to extend the life of household items and keep fixable items out of landfills.
Repair Cafes originated in Europe and take place worldwide. 
Pre-COVID a Repair Café operated as a single day event provided 1-2 times per year with customers interacting with fixers and learning while watching/helping. 
During COVID we would like to offer a Repair Café by appointment following COVID protocols' or allow fixers to take the items home with them. 
This will be a short term opportunity spanning no more than two weeks of time.
Additional Details & Skills Required
This is a short term event spanning at most 2 weeks of time. The "fixing" can be done at the volunteers availability either in person at at the volunteers own home.
Certification or Education Required
Ability to "fix" something. Examples: sewing or needlework, jewelry fixer, small appliance fixer, IT/computer fixing.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
Help people help themselves. Support an environmentally conscient movement.
