is waking Southern California residents up with
#WescomKindness for Daylight Saving Time this Sunday, March 12, inviting
guests to spring forward with free coffee at select locations of The
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.

Many people are surprised to learn that Wescom is a not-for-profit
financial cooperative, owned by our members. To support our mission of
making banking a better experience, we’re excited to spread
#WescomKindness in Southern California with our third annual event in
association with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®,” said Deena
Otto, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Administration, Wescom Credit
Union. “This year we’ve added two more locations to the list of
participating Coffee Bean cafes, allowing us to surprise more
people in our communities with free coffee to brighten their day.”

This Sunday, Wescom Credit Union will be picking up the tab for lucky
guests in twenty-one different The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®
locations in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. Big
, Wescom’s self-contained mobile financial center, will be
parked adjacent to the Pasadena location (18 S. Fair Oaks Pasadena, CA
91105) with financial experts on hand to answer any questions. While
visiting Big Blue, SoCal residents can open a Wescom checking account,
get pre-approved for a Wescom loan as well as enjoy the added
convenience of getting cash from Big Blue’s ATM.

We’re excited to help Wescom Credit Union surprise our guests for the
third year in a row, especially on a day when morning routines are
thrown off due to Daylight Saving Time,” said Adam Tabachnikoff, Senior
Vice President, Global Brand Strategy, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.

All participating locations of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® are
available online at www.wescom.org/wescomkindness.
Beverage tabs will be paid by Wescom, up to $15 per transaction,

bills are paid for at each of the twenty-one designated locations.
