Community Involvement

Denim for Dollars

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 almost $200,000 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:

Owatonna Lighted Holiday Parade

Teammates from United Prairie in Owatonna helped kick off the holiday season in style this year. They participated in the annual lighted parade that takes place. It's a great way for the community to celebrate the season together.



Packing Food 4 Kids

A group of United Prairie team members in Jackson volunteered their time to help pack food for the Food 4 Kids program. This program provides weekend meals to children in the Jackson County elementary schools.
