Ugly Sweaters Raise Money for Casa de Amparo

Ugly Sweaters Raise Money for Casa de Amparo

January 18, 2018

Oceanside, CA — Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) staff raised $500 for Casa de Amparo through the annual PMCU Holiday Ugly Sweater Contest. PMCU staff put on their ugliest holiday sweaters on December 15th to pose for photos with their departments/branch. The photos were then posted on PMCU’s Facebook page along with each group’s charity of choice. Ryan in our Operations team received the most votes/likes on Facebook winning his charity, Casa de Amparo, $500!

Ryan Dunn, Operations Analyst and winner of the ugly sweater contest stated, “Having had friends and family affected by domestic violence and child abuse, Casa de Amparo was a clear choice for me when selecting a charity to contribute to. Dedicating your life’s work to helping people who arguably need it the most, make this a group of very special people. Casa de Amparo is clearly a stand-out organization.” To see all the participants’ photos and get involved next year, visit PMCU’s Facebook Page at “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 Casa de Amparo, the winning charity of their social media ugly sweater contest.
