Where: Habitat for Humanity ReStore (6280 Silver Creek Dr, Park City)
Cost: Clinic is free for all participants
Bring your broken appliances, electronics, bicycles,furniture or clothing that needs mending! You’ll be paired with a coach who can help you diagnose, fix or just understand your belongings a little better.
“Fix-It Clinics” are designed to empower participates to become better stewards of their material belongings. Participants can bring in broken items that they would like to learn how to repair, and will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with an experienced Repair Coach.
In addition, participants will learn how to navigate free DIY websites. Examples of acceptable items include clothing, small carpentry items, small appliances, bikes, and small electronics. All items must be able to be carried in to the clinic by the participant (no refrigerators, couches, etc.).
At this event, tools will be provided for use. However, participants are encouraged to bring their own tools in order to learn how to properly use them. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately for working on their selected broken item (such as safety glasses, gloves, closed toe shoes, work pants/shirts).
The Fix-It Clinic will be open for participation from 11 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, October 14, at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Participants will be helped in order of when they arrive, as well as based on when the best-suited coach is available. All ages are invited, but youth under age 12 must be accompanied by a legal guardian/parent.
Additional volunteers with expertise in various types of repair work are needed for the event. If you are interested in being a Repair Coach, please email email@example.com.
Over the last few months, you may have noticed that the ReStore has been under construction. With the help of some dedicated volunteers, we remodeled the front cash register area. Keeping with our mission and values, we used reclaimed barnwood, ReStore Green Sheen paint, salvaged tin material and repurposed cabinets.
We also removed some walls at the back of the store to create additional floor space for us to provide even more affordable products for our community. Over the next couple weeks, we will be expanding our appliances and cabinets into this new space.
We could not have done this without our amazing volunteers who continue to help us year after year! Thank you, John, Tammy, Landon, Doug, Charlie and Michael, for donating your time to the ReStore.
