County Executive Ed Day today announced that volunteer Repair Coaches are being sought for the 2018 Repair Café, scheduled for Sunday, May 6th at the Nyack Center.
Repair Café is a community event where people can bring broken household items to be repaired for free by volunteer Repair Coaches. There will be several repair stations, including: computers and electronics, lighting, furniture, clothing, toys, small appliances, and jewelry.
Repair Coaches are social people at least 18 years old with high level repair experience in trades or crafts such as small appliances, woodworking/carpentry, computers and electronics, sewing and knitting, and jewelry.
Volunteers are needed for five hours on Sunday, May 6th from 9 am until 2 pm at Nyack Center, located at 58 Depew Avenue, Nyack NY 10960. Repair Coaches will collaborate heavily with the public, with other repair people, and with students looking to learn more about trades.
