At Pacific Service Credit Union, we pride ourselves on being an active part of our community. We’re already hard at work in 2013 contributing in the communities that we serve. Here’s a little more about our funding in the first three months of the year.
Kids Day 2013 Sponsorship
Once again, we are a proud sponsor of Kids Day 2013 benefitting The Children’s Hospital of Central California, which provides medical treatment to over 100,000 children.
YMCA of San Francisco
We are supporting the Presidio Community YMCA’s afterschool learning program at Sutro Elementary School. The program provides free, high quality afterschool services to youth in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond neighborhood.
Diabetic Youth Foundation
Our donations support the DYF with their mission is to improve the quality of life for children, teens and families affected by diabetes by providing education and recreation to foster personal growth, knowledge and independence.
San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Foundation (SFDSF)
This year’s funding will provide back-to-school supplies for 300 low-income, at-risk children. The event gives private access to a local Target store for the children and deputy sheriff officers to shop. Merchandise is specially priced to maximize what each child can purchase with their allocation.
Credit Unions for Kids is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions and business partners from across the country benefitting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Funding supports treatment of children, regardless of their ability to pay.
Children’s Miracle Day Fundraiser
We were one of many credit unions supporting the Credit Union SacTown Ten-Mile Race benefitting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including hospitals in Oakland and Fresno.
Fresno Police and Neighborhood Watch program
Our funding supports community block parties and education for children. Children participate in crime prevention and games that reinforce positive living, improve relations with law enforcement officers and encourage community spirit.
Fresno Police Activities League (PAL) programs
Our involvement will support programs for low-income, at-risk residents of the community, including bicycle repair, bicycle giveaways and a mentoring pen pal program.
American Red Cross Save-a-Life Days (Formerly CPR Saturdays)
For the 11th year, our funding will sponsor a series of regional training events that deliver lifesaving skills to vulnerable populations in underserved communities at no cost.
Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano – Admiral’s Garden event sponsorship
Proceeds from the event help the Food Bank supply food to needy families during the summer months when donations are historically low. We have supported this event since 2004.
If you are involved in a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that you feel may fit our mission, we would be happy to consider them for a charitable contribution. Simply email me and include your organization’s name, email address and phone number.
