Lincoln Repair Cafe returning to town

Repair Cafe is run by a team of volunteers, they say most repairs take about 30 minutes

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – If you have any broken items that you’re thinking of throwing away, they will try to fix them.

“Repair cafe was created to reduce the amount of household items going into the garbage,” Amy Montgomery, with Lincoln Repair Cafe said. “We’re a group of people who still have the skills and desire to repair things and keep them out of the landfill.”

Repair Cafe is run by a team of volunteers, they say most repairs take about 30 minutes. Some of the most common repairs made include irons, lamps and fans, but they say they will look at any item you bring them.

“We do want you to bring it to us and let us give it a chance at a second life before it goes in the landfill, if you can bring it down, we’ll look at it,” Montgomery said.

Repair Cafe has been in Lincoln for seven years. They were postponed due to the pandemic but hope to return to a monthly schedule starting Saturday at New Visions Church at 11th and Garfield at 1 p.m.
