Fix it Friday

How It Works

Stop by on one of our scheduled dates with an article of clothing in need of a basic fix. Our volunteers will repair it on the spot.

We offer quick repairs such as mending a hole or sewing on a button. We don't do major alterations or repairs, but there are several places around town that can help.

Keep Your Clothes Out of the Landfill

Fashion is a major polluting industry. Fix It Friday helps decrease the amount of clothing and textile waste that end up in landfills. It also reduces the amount of clothing donated to overseas secondhand markets which are detrimental to the environment.

Get Involved
