Griff Gives Back

Griff II is gearing up for the sixth annual Griff Gives Back pet food drive! This is his first year in charge and he has set a goal of 10,000 pounds to help area pets in need through The Pet Project Midwest, a local pet food pantry. During his five-year reign as Drake’s official live mascot, Griff I collected an impressive 32,000 pounds of pet food. Griff II, also known as George, will be asking for donations of adult dog and cat food starting March 22 through April 24. Follow him on social media, @DrakeUGriff, for updates on this initiative, and visit for ways to contribute. Thank you for your generous support of Griff Gives Back!
