Holiday Volunteer Opportunities

Merry Thriftmas at Arc’s Value Village!
Thank you to the many volunteers who have helped with Merry Thriftmas set-up and restocking at our stores this season! Volunteer shifts in Merry Thriftmas are still available through December 15. Contact Molly at (952) 920-0855 or to sign up for a shift.

Donation Door Volunteers needed Dec 29-31!
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 2018.

Volunteers are needed December 29-31 at the Richfield and New Hope donation doors to help donors unload their cars and hand out tax receipts. Volunteer shifts available December 29-31: 10am-12pm, 12-2pm, 2-4pm and 4-6pm. Our greatest need will be for Saturday, December 29 and Sunday, December 30.

A small number of volunteers will also be needed on Saturday & Sunday, 12/29 & 12/30 at our locations in Bloomington, Brooklyn Center, and St. Paul (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 Donation Door volunteers will earn a special 40% off coupon for helping out. In addition, volunteers will also receive Village Rewards points for working a shift! Each volunteer will earn 1,000 points–2,000 if they bring a friend!

If you can help, contact Molly at (please reference Donation Door in the subject line) or (952) 915-3652 to sign up for a shift.

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!
