White Center Repair Time
We have had eight of these repair events in White Center. At all of our King County repair events, bring your small household items including clothing and we'll work on them! We want to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money. Free and open to all!
Once again during this repair event, also in the gym, we will have:
- Free community clothing swap. Bring and take any clothes you like! Clothes should be washed and in wearable condition. Hosted by the King County Parks White Center Teen Program.
- Kids' activities. Coloring and games for young children, while their parents are having their items worked on at the repair event.
More details on the repair event itself:
You must be present during the repair. Our experienced general "fixers" and sewing fixers will try to repair or mend your items, and can often also give you useful advice. There are no guarantees an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won't break it even more.
Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles you bring in for mending should be washed first.
All King County repair events are first-come, first-served, with no appointments or set times. But please contact us in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, so our fixers can be prepared. For specialized repairs (which many are), please bring any specific parts or materials needed for your repair.
This repair event - aimed at reducing waste and building community! - is brought to you by the King County EcoConsumer public outreach program and King County Parks' White Center Teen Program.
