CSEA takes care of its members on the job, but it also lends a helping hand in times of crisis. Last year was no exception.
In October, dozens of CSEA members' homes were destroyed by the devastating North Bay fires. CSEA members and staff worked tirelessly to make sure their communities and coworkers were safe, providing members who lost their homes with supplies and financial assistance. Within a few days, CSEA's Humanitarian Fund, which subsists solely on donations, provided assistance to 119 members.
Less than two months later, 100,000 Southern California residents were forced to evacuate their homes due to raging, wind-fueled wildfires. The fires burned hundreds of thousands of acres and destroyed hundreds of homes. Once again CSEA's Humanitarian Fund provided aid to members who suffered losses.
Help us replenish the fund
The Dorothy Bjork Assistance Fund, also known as the Humanitarian Fund, provides financial relief to members in need. 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.
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.
