Kara Lappin, 19, shows her anxiousness before donating blood during the Mizzou Homecoming Blood Drive on Thursday at the Hearnes Center Fieldhouse. Though Lappin has donated blood before, she was a bit anxious about it, but still donated for her sorority, Pi Beta Phi.

After two days of the Mizzou Homecoming Blood Drive at the Hearnes Center Fieldhouse, more than 4,700 people had donated blood. The American Red Cross said there was a goal to collect 3,653 units of blood at the drive, which ran from Tuesday to Thursday. In 2008, the Homecoming blood drive collected 4,262 units of blood. In 2007, MU received an Organization of the Year award from the Association of Donor Recruitment Professionals for its work with the drives.
