"Walk In Their Shoes"  
We encourage you to "walk in the shoes" of someone less fortunate and to consider how a donation might change a life for the better. Working together through SECA, we can make a difference for those causes that are closest to our hearts. Consider making a donation to one or more of these charities, even a small donation can help!
