Got extra time this summer and looking to help out your community? Join the team of volunteers at Community Threads resale store in Arlington Heights! Hours are flexible, come and serve whenever you'd like.

At Community Threads, you will help process donated goods, merchandise them on the sales floor, or assist fellow volunteers and customers. The profits generated by Community Threads are given in grants to Home of the Sparrow, an organization dedicated to assisting homeless women and children as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency. To date, Community Threads has given over 1.56 million dollars in grants to the local community and with your help, we can continue to help out those in need.

Mission Statement

Community Threads is a nonprofit ministry that makes grants and runs programs supporting education and the relief of poverty.


Community Threads brings together a network of local ministries to help the homeless and underserved in our community through the operation of a nonprofit thrift store. The store provides a way for these ministries, our donors and shoppers to make a difference in these tough times. Through your donations of quality goods, Community Threads is able to provide the best stuff at the lowest possible price to shoppers on a budget and then return all the profits back to our communities for much needed services.

All profits from the store go directly to provide quality education to needy students, shelter for the abused and homeless, addiction recovery programs and other critical services right here where we live. We welcome new volunteers into the store. Sign up for our e-newsletter for special coupons and store news.
