Help! We Need You!

corrected volunteers wantedOur lives are full, fun, and busy . . . and always changing.

Indeed, we volunteers occasionally need to take time off to take on new challenges; to take care of precious family members; or even to take a vacation. So, though the Thrift Shops for Nova may have had an adequate number of volunteers in the past, at the moment, we are very short-handed, and we NEED YOU NOW.


Remember that 100% of our proceeds go to the West Island Volunteer Health Support Foundation. The foundation needs us and we need you to consider volunteering a few of your precious hours each week to support this very worthy cause.

Thank you.

Bounty Galore – We Need More!

Help that is!


Yes, we are very lucky to have so many generous donors, and we are, indeed, grateful.

However, with the wonderful, much-appreciated bounty–especially of clothing–we are in desperate need of sorters to help us make the inventory available for our shelves and racks.

As you know, the proceeds of our sales help provide much needed health care in the community. But if we can’t get the products on the shelves, our generous customers will never have the option to buy them. I think you get the picture. 🙂

Can you give us a hand for a few hours once a week? Yes, now we need generous sorters.

Thank you for contacting us here: 43 Ste. Anne, in Ste. Anne de Bellevue or at novahelpwanted@gmail.com
