Dear Alumnae and Friends,
On behalf of the Mizzou Alumni Association and the American Red Cross we would like to ask for your support and participation in the 25th Annual Homecoming Blood Drive. The Homecoming Blood Drive not only supports the University of Missouri but it is also a chance to help individuals in need. Each unit of blood collected at a drive helps approximately 3 people and serves hospitals that are currently without needed units of blood.
This year the Red Cross and Mizzou Alumni Association celebrate a partnership 25 years strong. Homecoming is an opportunity for Mizzou Alumni to celebrate Mizzou’s spirit of service and give back to the community. Over the past 25 years, Mizzou’s blood drive has consistently been one of the largest student-run Blood Drives in the nation.
The Homecoming Blood Drive will be held in Columbia, MO from October 11th- 14th at the Hearnes Center. If you are unable to return to Columbia for the blood drive you can still support Mizzou through our Satellite Blood Drive locations. You will have 25 days to donate at one of our satellite drives, from September 23 through October 17th. Please refer to the below list for a Satellite Blood Drive location near you.
Once again, we appreciate your time and energy spent donating to this charitable cause. The Mizzou Alumni Association thanks you for your support in helping us maintain our status as the nation’s largest blood drive.
Sincerely, Lucy Rusk - Delta Gamma Homecoming Blood Drive Liaison

More than 4,000 people participated in the fight against breast cancer by attending the first ever Mid-Missouri Race for the Cure on Sunday morning - and guess which girls were there, your DGs of course!
New member Elissa Curtis (10) helped organize a team of DGs to race in the event. The girls woke up early on Sunday morning to a huge thunderstorm, but they didn't let it hold them back. The entire event exceeded participant expectations despite the heavy storms. In the end, the fundraiser raised almost $150,000 to be donated in research for the cure of breast cancer. DG was so proud of our members who represented us in the race and we are so proud we took a proactive measure in helping battle breast cancer.
Learn more about the event here: Columbia Missourian
All of the money raised from Watermelon Fest supports the North American Food Drive in conjunction with the Central Missouri Food Bank. For every dollar raised, 20 lbs of food is donated to the hungry.
