Mizzou Football Holding Joplin Storm Relief Drive

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri football program is holding a drive to collect donations for storm victims in Joplin, partnering with a local restaurant to fill a semi truck with items.

Once the items are collected at D’Rowe’s Restaurant on Saturday, coaches and players will accompany the truck to deliver the donations. Former Missouri player David Rowe owns the restaurant.

Among items sought are flashlights, batteries, trash bags, band aids, bottled water and toiletries.

The school also is producing tornado relief T-shirts with the slogan “One State. One Spirit. One Mizzou.” Proceeds will go to the United Way’s United for Joplin campaign.

Shirts are $14.95 at www.mutigers.com, and will be on sale beginning Thursday at the school’s Tiger Team store outside Faurot Field.
