Let’s Help Sort Things Out

Live to the Max: Helping people with disabilities lead independent lives at a giant sort-a-thon for The Arc Greater Twin Cities.

NOTE to Volunteer Coordinator – you can sign your groups up to volunteer through www.gtcuw.org/next100 or by emailing volunteerunited@gtcuw.org.

Each of us deserves the opportunity to live the best life we can. The National Youth Leadership Council is pulling together a group of volunteers to help those with disabilities realize their dreams at a gigantic sort-a-thon! Join us!

Arc’s Value Village has 20 semi-trailers full of donated goods that need sorting and they need 600 sorters to do it! Volunteers will be turning re-use and recycle items into sales for Arc’s Value Village thrift shops. The profits from Arc’s Value Village stores support people with disabilities and their families with programming and advocacy.

There are three shifts available:

  • June 10, 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
  • June 10, 1-4 p.m.
  • June 11, 9 a.m-12 p.m.

It’s all happening at the Dairy Barn at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds!

This will be a fun volunteer experience and especially great for getting to know your co-workers. Rally your team, work group or lunch buddies. Sign up at www.gtcuw.org/next100. Remember to wear your logo’d shirts and caps to maximize our visibility in the community. You’re also encouraged to post selfies and action shots with the hashtag #Next100, so your photos will appear on the United Way website with other event volunteers.

Live to the Max — Help Those with Disabilities Realize their Dreams. We’re partnering with Arc Greater Twin Cities for this event.
