Mizzou Homecoming Blood Drive Set To Take Place At Hearnes Center This Week

Nathan Lawrence

The University of Missouri's annual homecoming blood drive takes place this Monday through Thursday, Oct. 11 at the Hearnes Center.

The drive, which is consistently one of the largest student-run blood drives in the country, is in its 33rd year.

"One of my favorite things about the blood drive is that you get to see all of campus come together," Grace Corley, a student representative of the drive, said. "We are looking to collect 4,000 units [of blood] this year, and we would love for everyone to come support us."

Over the past 32 years, the drive has collected nearly 125,000 pints of blood. That's enough for about 40,000 transfusions.
