Repair Café is returning to Davis – We are looking for Fixers!

Are you the kind of person who avoids tossing things in the trash whenever possible? Do you enjoy fixing things and helping others learn how to do it? If your answers to these questions are “yes”, we need your help!

Sheridan will be offering its next at the Davis campus on Thursday March 22, 18. Everyone is welcome to join us for this community event. We are looking for volunteer Fixers who are skilled at repairing household items, everything from computers and electronics to small appliances and clothes. Faculty, staff and students are all welcome. At the event, as a Fixer, you will help visitors to repair the items they have brought in and walk them through the repair process.
