It’s easy and fun to volunteer at Arc’s Value Village! More than 4,000 people volunteer with us every year. We have the following shifts available for individuals or groups:

  • 9 am to noon
  • 1 pm to 4 pm
  • 4 pm to 6 pm
  • 6 pm to 8 pm

Help us sort, organize and get items ready for sale. You’ll be unpacking donations; hanging and tagging clothes; putting price stickers on books, dishes and other hard goods; testing small appliances to make sure they work, and more.

Volunteering with us is fun! We welcome:

  • Individuals
  • Church, community or service groups
  • Businesses and corporate groups
  • Youth who need to fulfill school or church volunteer requirements

Bring your friends – or make new friends!

Fun and Flexible
We’re open 7 days a week and we need your help.  Many shifts and opportunities are available.  You’ll have our sincere thanks – and the thanks of thousands of people with developmental disabilities and their families who depend on the programs you’ll help support.

Giving back to your community has never been so easy and enjoyable! We have volunteers who give us 100 hours a year, and others who give us 5. We’re thankful for every single one of them.

Our valued volunteers truly are the hands and hearts of Arc’s Value Village. So come “boogie in the backroom” or “samba on the sales floor” with us!
