Fix-It Clinic to repair damaged goods free of charge

Have any household appliances, electronics or clothes that need fixing? County residents can get free repair help later this month from volunteers at the Fix-It Clinic. 

Repair-savvy volunteers will guide residents through each step of the restoration process, teaching valuable skills and answering questions along the way. Residents can bring up to five items – such as lamps, vacuums, computers, stereos, clocks and more – to be repaired.

The Fix-It Clinic will be held Saturday, May 21, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Eagan Civic Arena, 3870 Pilot Knob Road in Eagan.

Fix-It Clinics reduce unnecessary trash sent to landfills, help educate residents and strengthen community relationships.Clinics are coordinated by volunteers through a Community POWER grant with assistance from Dakota County. 

Those interested in volunteering can sign up by contacting Karen Asmundson at fixitdakotacounty@gmail.com or 651-242-2655. For future dates and more information, visit www.dakotacounty.us and search Fix-It Clinics.
