PORTLAND'S FIRST TOY HOSPITAL TO BE HELD ON SATURDAY
Free Event Will Fix Broken Toys for the Holidays
12 DECEMBER 2014, PORTLAND, OR
SummaryRepair PDX will be holding its first toy hospital to help Portlanders fix their toys instead of throwing them out this holiday season. Repair cafés (such as this toy hospital) are free and festive events, which bring together volunteers who like to fix things with people who need things fixed.
Hollywood Senior Center (1820 NE 40th Ave.)
Saturday, December 13th
12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
The upcoming repair café will feature a special “toy hospital” to help encourage kids (and adults) to get more use out of their toys this holiday season, instead of throwing them out.
Our special, holiday-themed "toy hospital" will have great visuals, such as:
- Volunteers dressed up as medical professionals
- Children with stuffed animals and other toys to be repaired
- Hospital themed decorations and treats
“Why throw out a torn teddy bear, when a little bit of suturing can keep a much loved toy in the family for future generations,” said volunteer Noah Heller.
Repair PDX regularly hosts repair cafes, free and festive events, which bring together volunteers who like to fix things with people who need things fixed.
