Get your winter gear mended for free. The Dakota County clothing repair program is an opportunity to drop off items at a central location. A skilled volunteer repairs holes, hem, stitch and more. Please limit submissions to two items or less.
How to participate
Fill out a simple form to tell us more about your items and to identify a drop off time.
- Drop off your items at the Western Service Center in Apple Valley. A more detailed drop-off location will be given after you sign up.
- Allow time for the volunteer mender to pick up, mend and bring back. You will be offered a chance to meet virtually with your mender to see how the repair goes and learn tips for future mending.
- Come by to pick up your items when you get the notification.
