Earth Day Sort-a-thon – Saturday, April 22 in Richfield
Ever wondered what Arc’s Value Village does with all those donations that come in? You’re invited to a special “Earth Day Sort-a-thon” at our Richfield Arc’s Value Village on Earth Day—Sunday, April 22! Join us from 10am-12pm where your burning donation questions will be answered! In celebration of Earth Day, volunteers will learn about the “life of a donation”, our back-room processes including a close-up look at our reuse & recycling program. Volunteers will then get “hands-on” by helping to unpack & sort donations and stock our sales floor.

Individuals and groups are welcome! To sign up, visit our Online Volunteer Calendar at arcsvaluevillage.org/volunteer and find the “Earth Day Sort-a-thon” listed on the calendar for April 22 at Richfield.

      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!
