Pacific Marine Credit Union Delivers Contest Winnings to San Diego Humane Society

January 26, 2017

Oceanside, CA — Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) held their annual Ugly Sweater Contest in December to show support for local charities.

Credit Union staff donned their ugly holiday sweaters and posted their best team pictures on the PMCU Facebook page for fellow staff, members and the public to vote for their favorite photo by clicking the ‘like’ button. Each team chose a local charity that they were competing on behalf of, knowing that the winning charity would receive a donation of $500 from Pacific Marine Credit Union.

This year, the Pacific Marine Credit Union branch team in Yucca Valley, California won with the most likes and chose the San Diego Humane Society as their charity of choice to receive the winning donation.

“Our Ugly Sweater Contest has quickly become a favorite tradition among our staff,” said Jennifer Topzand, Director of Marketing at Pacific Marine Credit Union. “It is one of the many fun ways throughout the year that we enjoy supporting local non-profits.”

Pacific Marine Credit Union presents a donation check of $500 to the San Diego Humane Society, the winning charity of their social media contest.
