860 AM KNUJ/97.3 FM/SAM 107.3 and your New Ulm HyVee announce this month’s Hometown Hero: Barb Olson of Courtland. This past January, Barb initiated the local effort of the National program Laundry Love. Laundry Love partners with groups, schools, churches, and local laundromats to wash clothes and bedding of low-income or no-income individuals and families. Barb along with the United Church of Christ and other volunteers are at the Mega Wash in New Ulm on the fourth Tuesday of every month from Noon to 5:00 p.m. to assist and help people who are struggling financially with their laundry. We would like to congratulate Barb on her compassion and dedication for helping those in need. She will receive a HyVee gift card and be recognized at a luncheon this fall.
860 AM KNUJ/97.3 FM/SAM 107.3 and HyVee wish to acknowledge those in your community, neighborhood or organization that give the most precious gift – time to worthwhile causes while helping those less fortunate or rescuing efforts in an emergency situation. We welcome nominations from a 10-county area. Get information at the service counter of your New Ulm HyVee, knuj.net or at the KNUJ/SAM 107.3 studios in New Ulm and Sleepy Eye. Help us share the stories of Hometown Heroes throughout the KNUJ/SAM 107.3 listening area.
