The original programs that stirred the creation of what is known today as the Mission Store, began at the hands of Volunteers, who distributed clothing to Londoners in need. Today, the Mission Store remains largely dependent on the help and support of over 100 volunteers, serving in various roles and capacities. As a volunteer with us you will be part of a team of people who are passionate about helping others and giving back; and, you’ll also be meeting new friends, taking on fun and exciting challenges, and staying active and healthy. We have many interesting opportunities available, and we work closely with all of our volunteers to create a flexible schedule that fits with your lifestyle.

I love helping others, love the atmosphere at the store, and voucher room
It is a great organization with wonderful people who make everyone feel welcomed
I love being a volunteer because I can give a little to those who are in difficult situations or are newcomers, also because I can interact with people and get to know a little about them, I really admire people who dedicate their time to helping others, it makes me feel at home a better world.
I have been volunteering for about 24 years , enjoy every minute of it. The staff and other volunteers are wonderful, helping people get their lives together is number one reason I have volunteered for so many years.
I enjoy being busy and always have LOTS to do at MSL. I feel that I am helping a great cause – there is so much need for those living in poverty, with housing insecurity and addictions. I am proud of the services provided by MSL and to be part of the organization
#1 reason is that we are helping people and I am committed in a regular rather than a vicarious way. #2 reason is that I am learning from the people I serve and they make me a better person. #3 reason is that we as volunteers are treated very well by MSL and are supported in our personal wish to help- thanks! Peggy is a great leader and I look forward to working with her every Wednesday. And the rest of the staff are great too- always there for us .
After a life (so far) of good fortune and health, I felt it was time to share what I have to give—my time, to support a very important MSL.
I have volunteered at MSL for many years and have always found the people and atmosphere to be excellent.
I feel that my time is well spent working with others who strive to better the lives of people who are facing difficult times
