Attention all students—staying close to home during Spring Break? Volunteering at Arc’s Value Village is a great way to get in some of those required volunteer service hours! Opportunities available Monday-Friday 9am-12pm, 1-4pm, 6-8pm and 6-8pm. Click the blue “Click Here To Sign Up” button to check out available times and sign up!

Spring into volunteering at Arc’s Value Village! Join us for a Spring Sort-a-thon at Arc’s Value Village Richfield on Saturday, April 13 from 10am-12pm. Volunteers will help unpack, sort & stock the sales floor with great spring clothing and accessories. Individual volunteers and groups are welcome.

To sign up, visit our Online Volunteer Calendar at and look for “Spring Sort-a-thon!” posted for April 13 in New Hope. If your group is interested in volunteering but cannot do April 13, contact us to schedule your own private Spring Sort-a-thon! Volunteers are encouraged to bring a bag of clothing donations when they come. Questions? Contact Molly L at (952) 920-0855 or

Ever wondered what Arc’s Value Village does with all those donations that come in? You’re invited to one of several special “Earth Day Sort-a-thons” at our stores. Join us: Tuesday, April 16 from 1-4pm at Bloomington; Friday, April 19 from 1-4pm at Richfield; Saturday, April 20 from 10am-12pm at New Hope; or Monday, April 22 from 1-4pm at St. Paul.

Join us and your burning donation questions will be answered! In celebration of Earth Day, volunteers will learn about the “life of a donation” and see our back-room processes including a close-up look at our reuse & recycling program. Volunteers will then get “hands-on” by helping to unpack & sort donations and stock our sales floor.

If your group/company is interested but none of the above dates works for you, contact us to schedule your own private Earth Day Sort-a-thon with us!

Individuals and groups are welcome! To sign up, visit our Online Volunteer Calendar at and find the “Earth Day Sort-a-thons” listed on the calendar for April 16, 19, 20 & 22. Questions? Contact Molly L at

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!
