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 nearly $250,000 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 are some recent community events United Prairie employees rallied behind:
