United Sertoma SERvice TO MAnkind: Ken McVicker's Memorial Scholarship
United Sertoma, SERvice TO MAnkind, is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization started by a group of dedicated individuals who shared a desire to help those in need of assistance in Lockport, Lemont, and surrounding communities. These men meet monthly for fellowship and to plan their two annual fundraisers (Golf Outing and NFC/AFC Championship Football Party). The money raised is disbursed based on requests from local philanthropic organizations that are then vetted by our donation committee. Other than the Lockport and Lemont High School scholarships, some of our recent recipients of monies from United Sertoma are as follows: Lockport Love, Lemont, and Lockport food pantries, Shady Oaks Camp, Holistic Riding Equestrian Therapy, Sertoma Speech and Hearing, Sertoma Centre and Little Mountain Community Theater. The reason for our scholarship is to not only help someone who is an example of giving of oneself but to help promote SERvice TO MAnkind throughout our communities.
