NEW ULM – United Prairie in New Ulm recently raised $1,000 through its Denim for Dollars program. Those funds were donated to Southern MN Crisis Nursery. The organization provides a temporary, safe, and loving environment for children while supporting and strengthening families experiencing stressful situations.

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. Four times each year, those funds are donated, along with a company-match, to deserving causes across the United Prairie footprint. The program has raised over $325,000 company-wide.
