KARM Stores would not be what it is today without the help of wonderful individuals and groups who volunteer their time to help us. The smiles of the volunteers create a welcoming and enjoyable environment for donors, customers, and employees; their hard work completes projects allowing us to better serve the community; and their presence provides encouragement to help us keep pursuing our mission!

We have had the joy of hosting Catholic Heart Camp for years now and they embody what we desire in a volunteer team. In fact, they have sent us multiple volunteer teams during many summers! Now we want to recognize one of the teams for their service earlier this month!

In early July, a Heart Camp team of five led by fearless crew leader, Ariel, served at our Western Avenue location in the donation processing area.

The work these volunteers completed in a month will leave an impact for years!

This Heart Camp group constructed a wall, built 2 office areas, and painted saving us thousands of dollars in renovation work! Thanks to their hard work we are able to better serve the Knoxville community and fulfill our missions of “restoring lives in Jesus’ name”.

Not to mention, this work will allow our team members to facilitate a more positive experience for donors and managers to have a space dedicated for team building and crucial administrative responsibilities.

We look forward to hosting more groups from Heart Work Camp for years to come. Thank you so much for spending your time with KARM Stores!

If you or a group you are involved in would like to volunteer at KARM Stores please schedule a time here. We are committed to facilitating an impactful, enjoyable volunteer experience for all.

We look forward to seeing you in our stores soon!
