About Labor of Love

Each year, UC lives part of its mission through its Labor of Love event. Held over the Labor Day weekend, students participate in a wide variety of service projects to uphold our commitment to living a “life of community service.”

For our 2022 event, students cleaned, did landscaping, painted, helped out at the Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association, prepared and served meals, participated in programs including Backpack Blessings, Step by Step. RCCR Outreach, and hosted a 5K Walk/Run.

While the weather didn’t cooperate, UC students certainly did. With style.
