HAUPPAUGE — CSEA members are at the forefront of community involvement through philanthropic endeavors.
Many of our members are active members of organizations that raise money for those in need, including the Long Island State Employee Federated Appeal (SEFA) committee.
SEFA is a state-sanctioned, charitable, payroll-contribution program established under state finance laws. The program is open only to state employees; SEFA does not apply to local government employees.
SEFA distributes money to nonprofit organizations that provide numerous types of vital community services, including health care, services for children and senior citizens, domestic violence shelters and disaster relief.
CSEA is a longtime supporter of SEFA through member donations and volunteer efforts. In our region, members once again proved our commitment to SEFA.
The state Department of Transportation’s SEFA committee recently held their annual silent auction, which raised around $1,200. All proceeds will be divided between organizations that raise money to fight Alzheimer’s and Cystic Fibrosis.
