General Information

We are so excited by your interest in the 2019 Homecoming Blood Drive website! Each year, MU, in partnership with the American Red Cross, hosts one of the largest blood drives in the world. MU students, faculty, and staff, along with the communities of Columbia and surrounding areas, come together to make this event a success. Your donation will help those in need in our community and beyond.

This year’s Homecoming Blood Drive will be a four-day event, held on Monday, October 12, Tuesday, October 13, Wednesday, October 14, and Thursday, October 15. The drive will run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day at the University of Missouri’s Hearnes Center Fieldhouse. There will be no Deferral Day.
