United Prairie donates to United Way
United Prairie in New Ulm recently raised $550 through its Denim for Dollars program. Those funds were donated to the United Way of Brown County’s Project Lunchbox. This program aims to feed local kids on the weekends with food packages, and is currently serving around 80 kids. Denim for Dollars is a company-wide program that gives back to the communities United Prairie serves through a combination of employee and company donations. Employees have the option to pay $5 on Fridays to wear denim.
