Griff Gives Back pet food drive

Griff II continues to ask for donations of adult pet food to benefit area pets in need through The Pet Project Midwest, a local pet food pantry.

This is the sixth annual Griff Gives Back pet food drive. Since its inception, the drive has collected more than 42,000 pounds of pet food—collected by the OG (Griff I).

In his first year leading the campaign, Griff II is having tremendous success. He met is initial goal of 10,000 pounds, and then surpassed his new goal of 17,000 pounds. Now, he’s raising his goal yet again to 30,000 pounds!

Please consider supporting Griff II in this effort! There are multiple ways to donate. Visit alumni.drake.edu/griff-gives-back for all the options and information.
