The Clean County Commission is still looking for volunteer “Fixers” to help citizens repair their salvageable items. If you have a special skill – sewing, jewelry repair, electrical, bike repair, technological, etc. and are interested in helping your neighbors, please fill out the Fixer Interest Form. Fixers are eligible for a $75 check or Williamsburg Area Restaurant gift certificate. Tools and supplies will be available to use onsite.
