East River Federal Credit Union (ERFCU) is once again sponsoring the 15×15 Challenge as part of Interlakes Area United Way’s  annual campaign drive. Donors who qualify will be eligible to win a $500 gift card from ERFCU.

  To qualify, donors must pledge at least $15 per month—or at least $180—to Interlakes Area United Way in 2024. The pledge must be submitted to Interlakes Area United Way by November 15.

 The 15×15 Challenge originated in 2017. Since then, it’s been linked to over $92,000 in pledges to United Way.

$180 a year is enough to buy free books for a year for six children through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. It could also equal a day of food and shelter for up to three people affected by disaster through the American Red Cross.

To donate towards the 15×15 Challenge, visit interlakesunitedway.org/donate. You may also email [email protected] to request a pledge form via mail.
