A real fixer upper. Volunteers to help residents repair broken items at Fix-It Clinics

County residents can receive free assistance from repair-savvy volunteers guiding them through each step, from troubleshooting to a completed repair, at three Fix-It Clinics held in Dakota County. 
Residents can bring up to five items that need fixing or mending. Common items brought to clinics are lamps, vacuums and clothes.
The next Fix-It Clinics will be held:
                     Saturday, Jan. 23, noon–4 p.m., Thompson County Park, West St. Paul

Fix-It Clinics help reduce unnecessary trash sent to landfills and empower individuals by teaching troubleshooting and repair skills. Clinics are coordinated by volunteers through a Community POWER grant with assistance from Dakota County.  
Residents interested in volunteering can sign up through Karen Asmundson at fixitdakotacounty@gmail.com or 651-247-6524. For future dates and more information, visit www.dakotacounty.us and search Fix- It Clinics.
