Repair Clinic Opening + Sorting Meeting

The Repair Clinic is now open! The Repair Clinic is a free clothing repair service for UC Berkeley students and staff, aimed at reducing textile waste on campus. The clinic repairs small rips and missing buttons and will be run out of the ReUSE Store. It will be open for clothing pick-up and drop-off during general ReUSE hours.

Our first general meeting will be Thursday 2/21 at 7PM in the ReUSE Store. We’ll be putting items that were donated over winter break onto the racks and separating out items which have been in the store for a long time. As with all sorting meetings if you come help out and you find an item that we are sorting (not already on the racks) that you’d like, you can take it for free. Snacks will be provided! To plan for the future, keep in mind that we will hold general meetings every other week on Thursdays at 7PM. These meetings are completely optional, but we try to make them fun and encourage you to come get to know your fellow ReUsers through them!

Apologies for not linking the slides from our infosession before. Here they are, for those of you who couldn’t make it.

Previous volunteers, please notice we have an exciting change: active member rewards. We will be encouraging volunteering at events and in the store by having special treats. The first threshold is that if you have earned 15 Perk Points by March 15th, we’ll take you out to Yogurt Park. To clarify, this is based on the total number of perk points you have earned for the semester – feel free to spend your perk points as usual without worry.
