Gather ye broken and torn stuff for a free Summer Repair Cafe! Join the Rethink Waste Project at The Environmental Center on Wednesday July 25th from 5:30 – 7:30, where volunteers will be on hand to fix your stuff – for free!

Acceptable items to bring include small appliances and electronics, small furniture/household goods, clothes and outdoor gear that needs to be sewn (by machine or small hand sewn repairs).

You may bring as many items as you like, but we ask that you get one items repaired at a time so as not to tie up all the volunteers for just one person’s items.
