Drake’s very own live mascot, Griff II, is overseeing the 8th annual Griff Gives Back pet food drive to benefit The Pet Project Midwest, a pet food pantry in Des Moines. Over its lifetime, Griff Gives Back has collected over 86,000 pounds of adult dog and cat food to help area pets! Griff II’s goal this year is 15,000 pounds. He works hard every day as the 54 pound furry embodiment of this university, representing what it means to be a Drake Bulldog in each and every thing he does. Please help him reach (and exceed) this goal by contributing to the cause! All information on how to donate can be found here: https://alumni.drake.edu/griff-gives-back. Thank you for your support!
