All Hands Active Repair Day

June 9, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A free service, open to the public. Donations are appreciated!

Do you have stuff around the house that is broken, or has stopped working — electronics, furniture, toys, and more — but you’d hate to just throw away? Wobbly chair? Flickering lamp? Tape stuck in your VCR? Bring it in, and members and volunteers at All Hands Active may be able to fix it, or maybe set you on the right path to getting your gadgets working again!

We offer no guarantees or liability if our repairs don’t succeed, of course: many things were not made to be repaired, and we may not have the necessary tools or expertise to make it work again, in any case. But if your gadgets’ next destination would otherwise be the recycler or landfill, we can guarantee that we’ll give it our best shot — perhaps it will save you a bit of guilt from trashing them straight away, and perhaps you will learn something new about how to fix the items you own!

Don’t throw it out, repair it!

This is primarily an in-person event: masks are recommended for the safety of our staff and guests.

If you wish to attend virtually, join us over on our Matrix instance at https://chat.allhandsactive.org , and let us know you have a question for our Repairsday host!
