Fix it Station



Effort level


About this idea

Broken electronics, blown out light bulbs and squeaky furniture, there always seems to be little things to fix in the home. To address these common issues, you can set up a weekly or monthly “Fix-it Station” staffed by neighbours with basic repair skills. These volunteers could be members of your community with various skill sets (such as those with a trades background). You can start by putting up a poster in the common area asking for volunteers to sign up. You can also partner with local organizations or high schools to see if anyone can lend an extra hand.
