SEFCU Members Donate $38,000 through Holiday Sharing Program



SEFCU members helped the credit union raise thousands of dollars during the 2016 Holiday Sharing Program, through which SEFCU raises funds to support community programs and activities in the regions it serves across New York State. This year, the members donated $38,000 of the total $160,000 raised by SEFCU employees and through the SEFCU corporate match.
