Thank you for your interest in volunteering!


In honor of National Volunteer Week we want to celebrate you, our wonderful volunteers, and shine a light on all of the hard work you do each and every day! The Arc Minnesota is extremely grateful for you and all of our volunteers for the tremendous gift of your time and talents. The support and services we provide to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families would not be possible without YOU!

Thank you for being one of the approximately 12,000 volunteers who contributed 91,336 hours of service at Arc’s Value Village in 2019!

We had hoped to host a volunteer celebration event this spring but due to the COVID-19 situation, we have had to postpone it. Our goal is for an event in the fall where we can celebrate you and all that we are able to accomplish because of you and the gift of your time! Thank you! Stay well!
