One State. One Spirit. One Mizzou.

Columbia, Mo. – The University of Missouri is partnering with the Heart of Missouri United Way to assist in relief efforts following Sunday’s devastating tornado in Joplin, Mo.

More than 100 Missourians have been killed by the deadly May 22 twister and over 2,000 homes and businesses were destroyed.

The university is producing “One State. One Spirit. One Mizzou.” Tornado Relief T-Shirts and all proceeds from each shirt sale ($14.95) will go to support the United Way’s United for Joplin campaign. Shirts will initially be sold through the Tiger Team Store, the University Bookstore and online at Shirts are on-sale now at and will be on sale beginning Thursday afternoon in the Memorial Stadium Team Store and bookstore.

 Other ways to assist the United Way’s recovery efforts include texting the word JOPLIN to 864833. That will trigger a $10 donation, which will be added to your cell phone bill.
