Wescom Credit Union Makes the Holiday Season Merry and Bright by Surprising Southern California Holiday Shoppers with Free Christmas Trees

Trees will be given away at 14 tree lots throughout Southern

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Grab your tinsel and ornaments! Beginning when the lots open on
Saturday, December 3, 2016, Wescom Credit Union will be surprising
holiday shoppers by picking up the tab when they go to buy their
Christmas tree this season.

As a way of showing the community #WescomKindness and spreading holiday
cheer, Wescom will pay for shoppers’ tree selections (up to $100 in
value per customer) at 14 Christmas tree lots throughout the Southland.
Each of the pop-up lots will give away $2,000 worth of Christmas trees
to unsuspecting customers, compliments of Wescom. Wescom’s mobile
banking branch, Big Blue, will also make an appearance at one of the
lots, and @Liz_Wescom will be tweeting the location the morning of the
surprise appearance. Shoppers who take a picture with Big Blue and tag
it #WescomBigBlue automatically enter to win a $25 Wescom Visa® gift
card between now and December 31, 2016.

“A little bit of kindness goes a long way, so we’re excited to be giving
away trees again this year as part of our #WescomKindness program,” said
Deena Otto, Wescom Credit Union Senior VP Administration. “We know the
holidays can be a stressful time budget-wise for many, and we can’t wait
to surprise people and help make their season brighter. This is just one
of the many ways that Wescom helps to improve the communities we serve.”

Between December 3-25th, Wescom branch managers will make
additional surprise appearances at local Christmas tree lots to pick up
the tab for unsuspecting customers.

Earlier this year, Wescom displayed its marquee #WescomKindness with its
second annual Wake Up with Wescom daylight saving time event, surprising
thousands of customers at 19 different The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®
locations throughout Southern California by paying their coffee and
breakfast tabs.
