Repair Fair & Share
Wed. October 21, 5-7 pm
Chemeketa Community College
Repair Fair & Share will bring together volunteers throughout the community for semi annual repair events. Embracing “repair rather than replace”, our goal is to provide community connections that not only provides repair service, but promotes troubleshooting and the repair process. We hope to inspire and enable people to continue repairing and sharing in their community. The community will benefit by making connections, learning skills, reducing waste, and saving money. We are looking for repair volunteers. Visit repairfair.net to sign up or to learn more about what we can help repair. For more information, contact Jessica Ramey 503.365.3180.
