Giving for Good Provides $25,000 in Summer Essentials!


Volunteers standing next to supplies

Thanks to the generosity of SEFCU members and employees, Giving for Good has been busy this summer – providing care kits, diapers, bunk beds, and more to help some of our most vulnerable neighbors during the warm summer months.

For the third year in a row, SEFCU conducted a summer needs assessment survey asking organizations in each region where SEFCU has a branch what types of items and supplies they needed to better serve their clients. As expected, the needs were extensive – but thanks to many of you, Giving for Good dollars were there to help provide those summer essentials.






Our Summer Essentials Program distributed more than $25,000 in personal care items, underpants, assorted clothing, bedding, sunscreen, cleaning supplies, and other items to the organizations listed below. Items were sorted and delivered to:

•    Albany Housing Coalition Inc.
•    City Mission of Schenectady
•    Compass House
•    Danielle’s House
•    IPH
•    Joseph's House & Shelter
•    Rescue Mission Alliance of Syracuse
•    Response to Love Center
•    Shelters of Saratoga
•    Sheriffs Homeless Improvement Program (S.H.I.P)
•    YWCA of the Greater Capital Region

These donations would not be possible without members generously supporting Giving for Good!
