Food Pantry needs volunteers to help distribute food and keep pantry organized. Volunteers are needed from 9AM to 2PM Monday-Friday.
Thrift Store needs volunteers to help with pricing and placement of merchandise Monday-Friday from 9AM to 5PM.
Sometimes just offering a person a kind word and a smile can change their life forever. Volunteering at the VAC gives you the opportunity to provide hot meals and nutritional support for our neighbors in need.
If you need to complete community service for your school or other organization, we maintain records and provide referral letters.
If you're never worked a job or need experience to qualify for a new job you can gain experience here. Our thrift store provides retail experience and our Community Kitchen provides food service experience.
We offer great prices every day, but we still provide opportunities to save even more.
We use a colored tag pricing system which allows us to discount colored tags in our store. Every time you shop you can find 25%, 50%, and 75% off on specific colored tags.
