Missouri Students Fundraise For Boston
COLUMBIA - MU student leaders organized "Mizzou For Boston" today. Director of Student Activities Joey Greenstein organized the fundraiser as a way to show Boston that Mizzou cares. Some of the items being collected are stuffed animals, Mizzou apparel and monetary donations.
As of right now the fundraiser is still in its early stages but has collected more than five hundred dollars through an online donation center. Director of Student Communications Jimmy Hibsch said that by Friday the goal is to raise five thousand dollars.
"We set a very lofty goal," Hibsch said. "Even if we raise a couple hundred dollars that is still something we are sending over there."
So far social media has been the primary method of advertising. Hibsch said by tomorrow hopefully more students and faculty and community members hear about the fundraiser and make some sort of donation.
All donation items can be dropped off in The New Student Programs Office and The Multicultural Center in the basement of the Student Center.
