Thank You to our Donation Door Volunteers!
Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who came out and helped at our stores’ donation doors on Dec 29, 30 and 31! With your help we were able to keep wait time in the drive-thru to a minimum and ensure our donors were served quickly and with a smile! Only in Minnesota will you get so many generous hearts willing to work outdoors in late-December!

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!
