Are you the person that gets called when something breaks down and needs to be fixed? Give the Kamloops Repair Cafe team a shout and prepare to share your wisdom! If not, please tell the fixers in your life about this opportunity.
The Kamloops Repair Cafe team is gearing up—fingers crossed for an event May 28! Before we can confirm that date, we need to know that we have a team of fixers available. If you are available and willing to assist us, please send an email to the organizers by May 13th.
We need fixers of all sorts: electrical, furniture/woodworking, clothing, bicycles, ceramics, costume jewelry, as well as general support with greeting, registration and triage. We will host a “fixer mixer” for new volunteers to go over the Repair Café protocols and procedures prior to the event, so that everyone will feel well prepared.
Repair Cafes are one-day pop-up up events where the owners of broken items are matched up with those who have the skills to fix them. That saves us money and helps the planet by reducing the need for new resources, energy, and landfill space. Plus, making broken things useful again is just super cool ?.
