Volunteer fixer-uppers repair broken items
Those with broken household items took advantage of the latest Gresham Repair Café to have their things repaired for free by community volunteers.
The event, which is a collaboration between the cities of Gresham, Portland and the Gresham Neighborhood Associations, had people with repair skills help their neighbors in need. Repair Café was held Thursday evening, Aug. 10, at the Rosewood Community Initiative, 16126 S.E. Stark St.
Some of the items repaired included broken bicycles, torn clothing, clocks, small kitchen appliances and electronics.
The next event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 7, at Mt. Hood Community College. The Repair Café will be held in conjunction with a large sustainability fair on the campus.
