Pacific Marine Credit Union Fulfills Local Foster Children’s Wishes

Oceanside, CA —

Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) partnered with Rancho Damacitas, a local foster home in Temecula, to fulfill the holiday wishes of over twenty-five children.

Foster children spending the holidays at Rancho Damacitas created wish lists of their top wanted or needed items, from toys and makeup to comforter sets and school backpacks. PMCU employees and members took each of the wish lists and went shopping for their gifts. Donors ended up exceeding the amount of wishes, and many shopped for year-round items needed for the Rancho Damacitas cottages instead.

“As a credit union, we believe it is important to give back to our local community,” said Sandra Salazar, PMCU Temecula Branch Manager. “We are so grateful for Rancho Damacitas’ dedication and support for our local children affected by emotional, physical and mental abuse. I am happy we could help this worthwhile organization.”
