CSEA takes care of its members on the job, but it also lends a helping hand in times of crisis.
In November 2018, the Camp Fire in Butte County forced hundreds of CSEA members to evacuate their homes. For many, there was nothing left to return to but ashes. CSEA has been actively helping members through the Dorothy Bjork Assistance Fund. The fund subsists solely on the generous donations of CSEA members and is disbursed through two different programs: The Emergency Assistance Program and the Humanitarian Assistance Program. CSEA members who have been impacted can apply for up to $1,000 in emergency assistance.
Support for the Dorothy Bjork Fund doesn’t come from union dues—it relies solely on donations from our CSEA family. If you’ve already donated, thank you for your generosity. If not, please consider how much your contribution will be appreciated by those members in need.
Help us meet our goal to replenish the fund with 10,000 member donations! Donate today. No amount is too small.
CSEA members who have been impacted can apply for up to $1,000 in emergency assistance. Call CSEA Member Benefits at 1-866-ITS-CSEA (487-2732) or visit csea.com/bjork for applications and forms.
