Oceanside, CA — Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) proudly presented a $2,532 donation to the local Wounded Warrior Homes, aiding their “Help Build a Home” campaign. The donation was the result of a month-long campaign that took place at each of PMCU’s eleven branch locations. Employees and members participated by making monetary donations and signing donation cards that were displayed throughout each branch.

Wounded Warrior Homes provides long term (up to 30 months) transitional housing for post 9/11 combat veteran who are symptomatic of Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress, who because of lack of resources for sustenance are potential victims of homelessness.

Through the financial support of the “Help Build a Home” campaign, Wounded Warrior Homes can expand their capacity to provide affordable housing, hands-on resources, and a defined path for each member to transition from active-duty military service to independent living.

This is the fourth annual fundraiser PMCU has held in support of the Wounded Warrior Home organization, with a total donation contribution of $24,362.
