NEW ULM — MRCI Bargains made a $1,000 donation to Adaptive Recreational Services Thursday night.

ARS is a non-profit organization that hosts events and projects for people with disabilities. ARS meets on average four times a week, typically at the Community Center. ARS has been part of New Ulm since 1982.

MRCI’s main purpose is to raise funds for groups like ARS.

ARS Coordinator Karrie Borchert said the donation will go to covering the group’s Valentine’s Day dance and future costs of the program.
