Blaine's First Ever Fix-It Clinic

20180303-FixItClinic-3-news-300

The City of Blaine held its first ever Fix-It Clinic on Saturday, March 3. Residents brought in broken items such as lamps, coffee pots, clothing, heaters, mixers, and computers to see if volunteer fixers could repair them. Over half of the items brought in were successfully repaired, saving 125 pounds from going into the landfill. 

Ten fixers volunteered their time and talent to work with residents on repairing their items. The fixers spent time explaining what they were doing and had the resident assist them with the repairs. If an item couldn’t be fixed, the volunteer gave advice on parts the resident needed or referred them to a source that could provide additional help.

This program was sponsored by the City of Blaine and the Anoka County Board of Commissioners, and State SCORE funds (Select Committee on Recycling and the Environment).

Additional Fix-It Clinics will be occurring around Anoka County monthly. The next clinic is in Coon Rapids on April 7. For details, visit https://www.anokacounty.us/3432/Fix-It-Clinics.
