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.

Christmas for Kids

Who needs Santa when you have Volunt-Heroes?  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.

Auction for a Cause

Are you more of a Hulk or Superwoman? We need those strong and willing to help us with Uptown Sertoma's Annual Auction for a Cause. 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. 

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!
