A Letter and Donation to Upscale Resale from an MU Alum

It was a Monday morning and although Upscale Resale was closed, a team of volunteers were reorganizing merchandise and resetting displays. Amid the flurry of activity, United Parcel Service delivered a large package. The return address indicated a California sender: there were no hints of the box’s contents. Thus, curious volunteers carefully opened the box and pulled out an opaque bag. Holding the bag to the light, the volunteers could see it contained MIZZOU logo items. A second bag contained more Mizzou gear. Taking another look into the box the volunteers found a bright gold envelope labeled packing slip. Included with the list of items was this message:

“Please find donated clothing for your upcoming Black and Gold Promotion. As a MIZZOU alum, I wanted to donate items from my recently deceased husband, MU 1961. He loved each one of these items and I wanted them to go back to Missouri hopefully to a student who will wear them with pride.”

UPSCALE RESALE’S BLACK AND GOLD EVENT BEGINS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19!
