Cville TimeBank Repair Café

Don't toss it – FIX it!

Toss it? No Way! FIX IT!

At a Repair Café, folks bring their broken stuff to be repaired by volunteers for free. It’s a fun, friendly way to keep perfectly good stuff out of the landfill and spend some quality time together as a community.

Don’t toss it. FIX it!

Chairs. Fans. Lamps. Toasters. Bikes. In the Charlottesville area, these are the things most likely to end up in the trash when they break. Let’s make them useful again!
