Fix it Clinic

General Description

It takes time and money to handle all the waste we throw away. When we reduce the amount of stuff we buy and eventually throw away, we end up with more time, space and money. Fix-It Clinics provide an opportunity for residents to receive free assistance from repair savvy volunteers guiding them through each step from troubleshooting to completed repair.

Several volunteer opportunities are available to help at a Fix-It Clinic. Volunteer fixers who have skills in soldering, electronics repair, electrical repair, sewing, wood working and general tinkering are essential to making the clinics successful. General volunteers to greet residents are needed as well.

Locations change each month and are hosted at various sites across Dakota County. Clinics usually are held on the third Saturday or Sunday of the month in the afternoons. Check the Dakota County Fix-It Clinic page for upcoming clinics.
