Accessible Play

PREMIER made it a little cooler for children of all ages and abilities with a donation to Miracle League of Sioux City. Our gift helped fund the final phase of an accessible playground.

PREMIER and our leadership are helping fund projects that honor our active military, veterans and their families. This includes providing funding for buildings, family resources and honor parks.
