OSU partners with United Way of Benton and Lincoln counties to offer a spring Day of Caring service day each year. Day of Caring was previously run out of New Student Programs and Family Outreach as part of CONNECT. The program moved to spring and the Center for Civic Engagement during the 2012-2013 academic year.
The Day of Caring was established in 1992 by the United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area to promote the spirit and value of volunteerism, increase the awareness of local human service agencies and schools, and demonstrate what people working together for the community's good can accomplish.
In 1999, the Day of Caring was renamed the United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring in honor of Larry Richardson, a long-time volunteer of the United Way and the community, and past president of the Charlottesville Broadcasting Company.
