PPLD's Repair Café is a neighborhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to tossing things out. At a Repair Café you’ll find the tools and materials needed to repair your broken items, as well as knowledgeable volunteers who will show you how to do it. Repair Trainers will offer a diagnosis and suggested remedy for broken items, repairing items when possible and otherwise explaining what parts you may need to obtain to complete the repair. The Repair Café exists to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. Why don’t you give it a go? Click Here to learn more about the international Repair Café initiative.

Volunteers are not obliged to reassemble disassembled appliances that cannot be repaired. Disclaimer: Please know you bring your items to be repaired at your own risk. Because repairs are made by unpaid volunteers there may be risks.
