Get your holiday cheer in gear and join us at Arc’s Value Village this season to help unpack, sort, sticker and stock holiday items in our “Merry Thriftmas” department!   Volunteers are now needed to help with Merry Thriftmas restocking and organizing Nov 4-Dec 18.  This is a great holiday opportunity for individuals and small groups!

Volunteer shifts available: 9am-12 pm, 1pm-4pm, 4pm-6pm, 6pm-8pm.   Volunteers will earn a special 40% off coupon for every day volunteered in Merry Thriftmas!

“Donation Week” at Arc’s Value Village is just around the corner!  December 26-31 is historically the busiest time of the year for receiving donations at our thrift store locations and the number of donors increases dramatically as people make one last trip to the donation drive-thru to donate and collect a tax receipt for 2016.

Volunteers are needed December 26-31 at the donation door at our Richfield location to help donors unload their cars, thank donors and distribute tax receipts.  Volunteer shifts are 10am-12pm, 12-2pm, 2-4pm and 4-6pm and our greatest volunteer need will be for Saturday, December 31.  A small number of volunteers will also be needed on the 31st at the other stores.  Contact Molly L at 952-920-0855 or volunteernow@arcgreatertwincities.org with questions or to sign up for a shift.  Be sure to reference “Donation Week” or “New Year’s Eve” in the subject line.  Donation Week volunteers will earn a special 40% off coupon!

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!
