Woodruff Park and Freeside Atlanta will launch the inaugural Woodruff Park Pop Up Repair in downtown Atlanta. 

The Pop Up Repair will begin on Sunday, September 24 during Atlanta Streets Alive, which will take place on Peachtree Street from 2:00 p.m until 6:00 p.m.

Community members are invited to stop by Woodruff Park Pop Up Repair to drop off household items in need of repair. Artisans at Freeside Atlanta and Pop Up Repair will fix items, which will be made available for pick up in early October. 

Items eligible for repair include chairs, lamps, appliances, jewelry, clothes, accessories, and toys. Pop Up Repair does not focus on shoes, software, hand-held electronic devices, fine jewelry, or clothing alterations.

"Pop Up Repair aims to reduce waste, create local jobs, and make it easy to care for what you have," said Sanda Goldmark, Founder of Pop Up Repair. "We are a social enterprise based in New York, where we have been fixing all kinds of stuff for four years. We are thrilled to partner with Woodruff Park and Freeside Atlanta to bring our service to Atlanta!"
