Mercy Corps hosts first west side Repair Café on Thursday, June 12 from 6 until 9 p.m.
As Repair Cafés gain popularity, community organizations like Mercy Corps have been reaching out to Repair PDX to co-host these events and increase both organizations’ ability to help Portlanders live resourcefully. Hosting a Repair Café supports Mercy Corps’ mission to build productive and sustainable communities, here in Portland and around the world.
Mercy Corps employees will be volunteering with other Repair Café “fixers” to help attendees troubleshoot and repair broken items, so there will be plenty of talented fixers on hand.
This event will include:
- Small appliances
Mercy Corps is excited to host a community event that brings people together for a common purpose of sharing local knowledge and technical skills to reduce waste! Grab that broken kitchen appliance or pile of clothes to be mended and head to Repair Café!
Repair PDX organizes Repair Cafés and partners with community organizations to bring these events to Portland neighborhoods. In May, North Portland Tool Library hosted a café where 40 different items got fixed. Over the last year, there have been 11 Repair Cafés and over 300 items repaired!
Bring your broken items for volunteers to help fix – for free!
