Mule Threads!


We are Mule Threads, a Non Profit organization part of the Inegrative Business Experience at The University Of Central Missouri, we strive to gain real world experience providing service to the Johnson County Survival Adult Abuse Center through starting and sustaining a successful business endeavor.

Survival Center

Community Service

Our company chose to dedicate our time and donate our profits to the Johnson County Survival Adult Abuse Center. We donated over 515 hours of community service by completing projects such as room renovation, painting, and donation organization.

Our Product

What We Sold

Tired of the plain old UCM logo on a plain shirt that only says "Choose Red"? We are. So we designed a new and fresh shirt, did a few surveys, and come find out? People love it. Not just students. But Alum, faculty, and just about everyone else.


At U-C-M It's Go Mules Go!

Without The University Of Central Missouri, none of this would be happening. We couldn't help the community, and we wouldn't have the chance to participate in such an opportunistic program.
