United Prairie is proud to continue to support the communities we serve through a combination of employee engagement, volunteering and of course, giving.
United Prairie launched our Denim for Dollars program in 2010 and has donated well over $150,000 to deserving charities and organizations across the company's footprint.
The Denim for Dollars program gives United Prairie employees the option to donate $5 on a weekly basis to wear jeans to work on Fridays. Donations are collected throughout the year and matched with company dollars to be dispersed to organizations chosen by each UP location.
Here is the most recent community involvement event United Prairie employees rallied behind:
United Prairie Bank Sponsors Steele County Fair Stage
The Steele County Fair saw over 300,000 attendees this year in August. United Prairie Bank marked its 34th year of being the the Official Sponsor of the entertainment performed on the stage in Fair Square. The United Prairie Bank stage showcased the Fabulous Love Handles, White Sidewalls, Klondike Kates, local dance and Tae Kwan Do studios, the Amateur Talent Show, and many other talented acts and performances.
The United Prairie tent featured the friendly faces of many UP team members who were busy meeting and greeting people, giving kids (and adults!) a shot at spinning the wheel to win goodies, and getting visitors to sign up for giveaways that were announced on the stage throughout the day.
