Paying it forward

As CSEA members, we give to help people in need. We volunteer to make our communities a better place. And every day, we work in schools to make a difference in the lives of students. But sometimes, we need help too. That’s why CSEA designates every February as Have-a Heart-Month to focus on fundraising for the Dorothy Bjork Assistance Fund.
