Annette and Ruth – September Volunteers of the Month!
Annette Alderson & Ruth Anderson work together in the book department at the Richfield store and have a big job keeping the books stocked and organized. They volunteer every Wednesday morning like clockwork and do an amazing job making sure more books are stocked and in the correct category. Annette & Ruth are an important part of the Richfield team—Annette since 2005 and Ruth since 2011—and we thank them for their support of The Arc and Arc’s Value Village!
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!
