Pacific Marine Credit Union Members Made Miracles for Local Children’s Hospital

OCEANSIDE, CA (June 20, 2013) Pacific Marine Credit Union (PMCU) raised over $13,500 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through a “Miracle Month of May” donation campaign. All proceeds of this campaign directly benefited Rady Children’s Hospital– San Diego, the largest children’s hospital in California.

Through a partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Pacific Marine Credit Union hosted a “Miracle Month of May” campaign.  The campaign sold and displayed Miracle Balloons at each of their 12 branch locations throughout San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, as well as through accepting donations via their local call center.

This was the seventh consecutive year that PMCU employees and members came together in support of the month-long donation campaign. In total, over $72,000 was raised over the years for the ill and injured children receiving care at the local hospital.

“As a credit union, we believe in the importance of giving back to the communities we serve,” said Brad Smith, PMCU Vice President of Strategic Development. “The Miracle Month of May is a way for us to support Rady Children’s Hospital and assist in sustaining this vital community resource.”
