SEFCU provides opportunity for members to ‘Share the Love’ and help community organizations



As a means of celebrating Valentine’s Day with its members, SEFCU conducted a “Share the Love” campaign on Feb. 14, during which credit union employees randomly selected members and asked them to choose one of several community non-profits to which SEFCU would donate $100 in their name. The total donated in members’ names across the regions SEFCU serves was $14,000.

By region, donations were made as follows:

Capital Region
