Repair Cafe – March 21 at Trafalgar! Calling Volunteer 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 so as well? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, we need your help!

Sheridan will host its next Repair Café event at the Trafalgar Campus on Thursday, March 21. We are looking for volunteer ‘fixers’ who are skilled at repairing household items such as small appliances, computers, clothes and plants. Faculty, staff and students are all welcome to participate. As a fixer, you will help visitors repair their items and demonstrate the repair process.
