Interlakes Area United Way donors could win $500 gift card

Donors to Interlakes Area United Way’s current campaign drive may be rewarded for giving back.

People who take the United Way’s 15×15 Challenge will be entered into a drawing for a $500 Visa gift card donated by East River Federal Credit Union. To be eligible, donors must pledge at least $15 a month in 2021 and return their pledge form to the Interlakes Area United Way by November 15th.  

This is the third year that East River Federal Credit Union has sponsored the 15×15 Challenge. The contest helped raise more than 19-thousand dollars in 2019.

Interlakes Area United Way President Lori Gustaf said that fifteen dollars a month equals 180-dollars a year, which is enough to buy free books for a year for six children through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, or can pay for a day of food and shelter for three people affected by disaster through the American Red Cross. 

More information about the challenge or how to make a donation online can be found on the United Way’s website.
