Fix-It Clinics

Hennepin & Ramsay County are now holding Fix-It Clinics throughout the community. At these events, residents bring in an item that needs fixing and partner with a volunteer with repair skills. Fix-It Clinics reduce the amount of stuff that gets thrown in the trash, teach valuable troubleshooting and basic repair skills, and build community connections. Volunteers have skills in soldering, electronics and electrical repair, sewing, wood working, small engine repair and general tinkering, and have a strong desire to teach people and empower them.

Examples of items that can potentially be repaired include: sewing machines, Dremel tools, umbrellas, toasters, laptops, clothing, electronics and more.
