Volunteer Opportunities

Between the DFW Mizzou Tigers Chapter and MAA, there are many ways to get involved and give back to Mizzou. Here are just a few:

  • DFW Mizzou Tigers Alumni Board is looking for a new Communications Director. The key areas of responsibility are:
    • Send out regular emails through mail chimp to alumni about various events, activities, and news.
    • Keep social media channels up to date on various chapter happenings.
    • Attend monthly board calls/meetings as schedule allows.
    • Work with board to ensure we are supporting our social media efforts and providing content for postings and such

      So if you enjoy communicating with members and have the love for Mizzou that we all do, let me know if you are interested. You can email me at dfwmizzoutigers@gmail.com. Come join this wonderful team of Mizzou volunteers!4

       

  • Congratulate Future DFW Tigers committed to Mizzou for next fall! – Write congratulatory letters to admitted students and encourage them to become Tigers. A personalized note from an alumnus or alumna can be impactful, and may tip the scales in favor of Mizzou!

  • Refer a Tiger – Know a current high school or college student who is interested in attending Mizzou? Tell us about them, and the University of Missouri Office of Admissions will follow up with more information about becoming a Tiger.

  • Become an Ambassador – Serving as a MizzouNet Social Media Ambassador allows you to do your part to give back to Mizzou – near, far, wherever you are. Ambassadors share MU content sent straight to their email inbox with the option to post directly to their own social media profiles.

  • Share Your Mizzou Made Story – We all have had different paths, but we are all #MizzouMade. Share how the University of Missouri has enriched your life.

Assistance with Hurricane Harvey

**Update – The chapter raised over $400 in cash donations and other supplies for those affected. Thanks to all who could support this effort.** 

Our thoughts are with our Houston Tigers affected by Hurricane Harvey. We want to lend a hand to Mittelstadt Elementary in Spring, TX  (just north of Houston). The families at this school have been hit particularly hard and could use some cleanup supplies. Our chapter is planning to make a donation, but if you’d like to donate cash or supplies, bring them to the watch parties this weekend. You can also send a cash donation to Scott Phillips at @sepn7d (Venmo) or scott.phillips1@gmail.com (PayPal). Be sure to let him know it’s a DFW Tigers Harvey Donation.

If you’d like to pick up some supplies, they could use:

  • bleach
  • cleaner
  • towels
  • paper towels
  • toilet paper
  • rubber gloves
  • trash bags
  • diapers
  • formula
  • dog food
  • cat food
  • blankets
  • pillows
  • deodorant
  • toothpaste
  • detergent
  • soap
  • shampoo
  • toothbrushes

Houston MU alum Lindsay Naremore is renting a U-Haul to take it back to start the cleanup effort. Thank you in advance for showing some tiger love to those in need.

Service Day at the North Texas Food Bank

Did you know 1 in 4 children in North Texas go hungry everyday? The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization, and the largest North Texas charity. Each day, the North Texas Food Bank provides access to 170,000 meals for hungry children, seniors and families through a network of more than 1,000 programs and 262 Partner Agencies.

As much as the DFW Mizzou Tigers love our great University, we also love giving back to our community. Our chapter will be donating our time on Saturday, April 25th at the NTFB Distribution Center sorting, boxing and/or bagging food for families across North Texas.

This is a family friendly event and we encourage you to bring along your future Tigers, however due to safety guidelines, all volunteers must be 10 years of age or older.  Any volunteer between the ages of 10 and 15 must be accompanied by adult chaperones (1 chaperone for every 7 youth).

If you’re interested in donating your time to the North Texas Food Bank please email DFWMizzouTigers@gmail.com with your contact information and the names and contact information of any additional volunteers who will be joining you by Friday, April 17th.

The DFW Mizzou Tigers are always looking for ways we can give back to the community and this year we’ve partnered with the City of Dallas’ Forester and Tree Planting Team at Kiest Park.  Volunteers will assist the Committee, the public and its partner organizations in planting trees.  About 200 volunteers are expected from various civic and community groups. Bring the family!  Every person can make a difference!

Meet at the park entrance on South Hampton Road.  You will see lots of trees, big holes, signs and tents.  There will be port-o-lets.  Please bring your own water.  Afterward, we’ll go out to location TBA to get something to eat and catch some afternoon games.
