Leaders of today, heroes of tomorrow.

About Volunt-Heroes

Heroes typically wear a mask. Like Batman, Spiderman, and other famous heroes, their identity is hidden while they go out to save members of their community. At the UFRC, we have an army of unmasked heroes who work diligently to rescue the community in various ways.

Whether they are handing out food from our pantry, getting toys ready for Christmas, or saving our nonprofit from the depths of disorganization, volunteers are vital to creating a healthier, happier community.

Did You Know?

In South Carolina, volunteers are valued at $23.21 an hour.




POW! 

Our Volunt-Heroes pack a punch into our workload! POW is an acronym for the three types of volunteers our organization utilizes.

Project

Volunt-Heroes specilizing on projects would be catering to our special events. These events are improtant because they help to spread word of how we help while raising funds to help us continue our mission. Scroll down to see more about upcoming special events.

On-call

On-call heroes are crucial to helping the community. When something unexpected happens, or a crisis emerges, they are the volunteers we call for help.


Weekly

Weekly Volunt-Heroes aid in keeping our nonprofit running smoothly so we may help clients as efficiently as possible. Harvest Family Ministries (HFM) supports our Crisis Intervention efforts, and possibly has the biggest need for weekly volunteers with our various programs. Through HFM, we have the Thrive Store, Food Pantry, Packs4Kids, and Christmas for Kids. If you are available at least one hour every week, you may be able to give HFM the support it needs.


Special Projects


Family Fun Color Run

We need special heroes for the Family Fun Color Run! This is a special event where families may walk, run, or even jump through clouds of vibrant colors along a 5K trail. 

Assistance is needed for setting up and breaking down the event. For those who wish to give a helping hand with these tasks, the fee for running the 5K will be waived and you may run for free!

Auction for a Cause

Are you more of a Hulk or Superwoman? We need those strong and willing to help us with the annual Auction for a Cause November 1st. This is a magical evening where over 700 individuals come to bid on items tempting and divine. 

For this event, help is needed lifting and setting down auction items, as well as wheeling items to their new owners.

Christmas for Kids

Who needs Santa when you have Volunt-Heroes? The UFRC will be holding its 12th annual Christmas for Kids Program Dec. 9-12th and 16-19th. This is a busy time where parents come to select special Christmas presents for their children. We need Volunt-Heroes who can assess, sort, organize, restock toy inventory, help families pick out the right toys, and aid with set-up and break-up of event materials. We also need Volunt-Heroes who can manage Toy Drives to supply this Christmas program.
 
The spirit of Christmas will carry on with your help. Volunteer application will be coming soon.
