ALBANY, N.Y. – SEFCU, formerly State Employees FCU, will announce a $500,000 gift to St. Peter’s Hospital’s capital campaign this morning.
The pledge includes a $200,000 gift for a new program called SEFCU Cares about your Heart and will help fund St. Peter’s Cardiac Health and Wellness Program, a pilot the hospital began several years ago to provide screenings and health information to employees at area businesses and organizations.
SEFCU said with its support, St. Peter’s will be able to expand the program to smaller businesses, community volunteer first responders, and under-served populations. It is expected to nearly double the number of screenings and educational events the hospital can conduct.
SEFCU will make the donation during a press conference at the Pepsi Beverages Co. plant in Latham. As part of the announcement, 16 employees of Pepsi Beverages will be screened for heart disease.
