Donation Week Volunteers Needed December 26-31!

Arc’s Value Village is coming up on what we call “Donation Week”, historically the busiest time of the year for receiving donations at our thrift store locations. On the last days of December, the number of donors typically increases dramatically as people make one last trip to the donation drive-thru to donate and collect a tax receipt for 2017.

Volunteers will be needed December 26-31 at the donation door at our Richfield and New Hope locations and will help donors unload their cars and hand out tax receipts. Our biggest volunteer need will be for 12/30 and 12/31 at Richfield and New Hope. Volunteer shifts will be: 10am-12pm, 12-2pm, 2-4pm and 4-6pm. A small number of volunteers will also be needed December 26-29.

Our locations in Bloomington, Brooklyn Center, and St. Paul will need a small number of volunteers on Dec 30 and 31 as well (same shifts as above).

This is an outdoor project so volunteers will need to bundle up in winter gear–coats, mittens, gloves, hats and boots a must! Refreshments will be provided indoors for volunteers to take breaks and warm up.

All volunteers will receive a special 40% off coupon for helping out at the donation door! Volunteers can also earn Village Rewards points for signing up to help on Dec 30 and 31!

Contact Molly L or Tisha at (952) 920-0855 or to sign up for a Donation Week volunteer shift.
