Daily Republic donates to tornado relief
The Daily Republic and its employees will donate $1,500 to the Wessington Springs Tornado Relief Fund.
The newspaper's employees raised money Friday as part of their weekly Jeans for Charity program. Each Friday, employees can wear jeans in exchange for $1, and the money is given periodically to charitable causes. Last week, extra donations were encouraged for the tornado relief fund.
Employee contributions, a match from The Daily Republic, and a portion of the money raised by the Jeans for Charity program in previous weeks will be pooled to make a total donation of $1,500.
