The Geneseo college community wrapped up the annual State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA) meeting the 2010 goal.

The college community raised approximately $52,500 for charities, including local charities, said John Haley, Administration & Finance systems manager and this year's SEFA Campaign coordinator. This year's goal was $52,000 and 246 employees contributed. Of the people that gave, said Haley, there was a 22 percent increase over the amount that was contributed in 2009.

This year's theme was "Go Green." During the campaign, the college hosted several environmental and other organizations dedicated to green and sustainable living to campus.

On Friday, Haley and Teresa Sexton, secretary to the vice president of Administration & Finance, who assisted with this year's SEFA campaign, will draw a donor's name to win an overnight stay at the Big Tree Inn.
