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:
Food Pantries for the Capital District: $4,500
Homeless and Travelers Aid Society: $2,600
Albany Housing Authority: $3,000
Samaritan Center: $600
Clear Path for Veterans: $600
Food Bank of Western New York: $300
Buffalo City Mission: $300
Western New York Veterans Housing: $600
Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse: $400
Southern Tier Veterans: $1,100
The Share the Love campaign was held as part of SEFCU’s Giving for Good program, through which SEFCU members can agree to donate a minimum of $1 per month to help support the credit union’s mission of improving the lives of people in its communities by providing financial support to community organizations.
