Last Saturday 17 volunteers gathered at the Vashon Eagles Club to receive over 120 registered items at our 15th Fix-It Café.
Ninety-nine items weighing 905 pounds showed up and we were able to fix 59 items for a total of 400 pounds. A further 365 pounds was diverted from the landfill by fixers advising owners how to replace vacuum belts, buy special parts, or simply showing how to properly operate the item. (Wow, that’s 365 pounds of advice!) Due to the deluge of stuff we were not able to get to a half a dozen items, and fixers took several items home.
