Wescom Credit Union Partners with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® for Second Annual Wake Up for Daylight Saving Time Event

Spring Forward this Sunday with Free Coffee & Breakfast Compliments of
Wescom Credit Union at Select SoCal Locations of The Coffee Bean &
Tea Leaf®

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To help people wake up for Daylight Saving Time this Sunday, March 13,
2016, Wescom
Credit Union
is surprising customers at select locations of The
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®
by paying for their coffee and breakfast
bill. Tabs will be paid beginning the moment the doors open in the
morning until $2,000-worth of bills are paid for at each of the nineteen
designated locations. The partnership with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®
marks the second annual Wake Up with Wescom Daylight Saving Time event
as part of #WescomKindness.


“There’s no better time for a wake up call than Daylight Saving Time and
we hope to make it a little easier for Southern Californians,” says
Deena Otto, Wescom Credit Union Senior Vice President Administration.
“This Sunday, we’re simply helping people start their day out right by
treating them to a special morning beverage and breakfast and we’re
excited to make this an ongoing annual event with The Coffee Bean &
Tea Leaf,
Southern California’s longest running and beloved coffee
establishment.”

Wescom Credit Union has chosen nineteen locations of The Coffee Bean
& Tea Leaf®
throughout Southern California to participate and
will have “Big
Blue”
, Wescom’s Mobile Banking Unit, parked in front of the Encino
location (16101 Ventura Blvd. Encino, CA 91316) with financial experts
on hand to answer questions about finances. “Even minor adjustments once
a year can keep your financial future on the right path and it’s a good
time to remember to do a little spring cleaning with your personal
finances,” said Deena Otto.

For this year’s event, three Westwood area locations were added to
reinforce Wescom’s commitment to the UCLA community as the Official
Financial Institution of UCLA Athletics
. All participating locations
for the Daylight Saving Time event are available online at www.wescom.org/wescomkindness.
Each location will receive $2,000 from Wescom to pay customer food
and beverage bills- up to $15 per transaction.

“We’re thrilled Wescom Credit Union chose The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®
for their Daylight Saving event for the second year in a row,” said Adam
Tabachnikoff, Sr. Vice President of Global Strategy for The Coffee
Bean®.
“Seeing the reactions to Wescom’s generosity when our guests
find out their bill has been paid inevitably brightens everyone’s day.”

Last year’s Daylight Saving event with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®
kicked off a yearlong #WescomKindness campaign featuring Random Acts of
Kindness on the streets and at various Southern California dining and
entertainment locations. Throughout the year, unsuspecting customers had
their tabs picked up at movie theaters, restaurants and food trucks, in
addition to being surprised and delighted in many other ways, including
free Christmas Trees given out at participating lots over the holidays,
compliments of Wescom Credit Union.
