Get your broken items repaired for free instead of sending items to the dump. The City and Coalition of Gresham Neighborhood Associations sponsor a Gresham Repair Cafe three times a year, bringing people with repair skills together to help neighbors fix their broken items.
Types of items repaired:
- Broken bicycles, chains and tires
- Torn clothing, missing buttons and other fabric repairs
- Broken clocks, fans and small kitchen appliances
- Broken VCRs, DVD or CD players, printers, calculators, Gameboys and remote controls
Please note: Televisions, microwaves and small engines are not repairable at this event.
What to expect: Try to bring anything that may be needed to repair your item: parts, buttons, matching thread, power cords, batteries, connecting cables, remote controls, instructions manuals, etc. We try to help everyone who brings an item. If participants bring multiple items, we can only work on one item at a time and may not be able to fix more than one item per person. Our volunteer fixers will do their best to repair your item, but some repairs may be too complicated or require resources that aren’t available at the event. The event is free. There may be a wait depending on the number of repairs.
