Pacific Marine Credit Union Helps Make Miracles for Local Children’s Hospital
June 9, 2016
Oceanside, CA — Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) employees and members raised $13480.70 during their 10th annual “Miracle Month of May” donation campaign, a month-long Credit Union for Kids program raising funds for Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
During the month of May, members purchased and displayed paper Miracle Balloon icons at each of PMCU’s eleven branch locations, as well as through the call center. Employees also hosted a variety of internal donation campaigns to contribute. These campaigns ranged from silent auctions to donating funds in exchange for having the opportunity to wear jeans at work during each “Miracle Monday.” These efforts all contributed to the funds raised for the local children’s hospital.
Over the last 10 years, Pacific Marine Credit Union has proudly donated over $100,000 to Rady Children’s Hospital through the “Miracle Month of May” campaign.
“As a credit union, we believe in the importance of giving back to the communities we serve serve and philanthropy is tightly woven into the fabric of our culture,” said Bill Birnie, PMCU President and CEO. “The Miracle Month of May has become a keystone campaign for us over the last decade because of its direct support of Rady Children’s Hospital, a vital resource in caring for local children.”
