Fix-It Clinics

Fix-It Clinics provide an opportunity for residents to receive free assistance from repair savvy volunteers guiding them through each step from troubleshooting to completed repair.

Several volunteer opportunities are available to help at a Fix-It Clinic. Volunteer fixers who have skills in soldering, electronics repair, electrical repair, sewing, wood working and general tinkering are essential to making the clinics successful. General volunteers to greet residents are needed as well.

Green Squad Events

What is Green Squad? We are volunteers that help our county events recycle more and create less waste. We are trained to be good stewards of our resources and to help others make smart decisions when it comes to recycling and waste management.
