Wescom Credit Union Takes to the Streets with Surprise Random Acts of Kindness

Unsuspecting Southlanders To Get Tabs Picked Up at Restaurants, Movie Theaters, Food Trucks, Car Washes and More Through July 4th

Surprise Street Teams To Hand Out Tax Day Gift Cards On April 15

LOS ANGELES--()--Wescom Credit Union will be on the streets and at various dining and entertainment locations throughout Southern California surprising people with #WescomKindness by paying tabs and giving out gift cards through July 4, 2015.

“Nothing is better than putting a smile on someone’s face, especially when they are not expecting it. We had such enjoyment coming up with ways to surprise people with Wescom Kindness, everything from staking out food trucks and movie theaters to just making someone’s day when it is most needed,” says Deena Spicer, Wescom Credit Union Senior Vice President Administration. Spicer was hinting to the fact that Wescom street teams will surprise people with gift cards at select post office locations to help take the sting out of Tax Day, April 15.

It’s all part of Wescom Credit Union’s plan to pay it forward and bring Wescom Kindness to the SoCal community. Locations and times for some events will go out in advance via social media but often the best moments take place when people have no idea that their bill is about to be paid.

Wescom kicked off the campaign by helping people spring forward for Daylight Saving Time, surprising thousands of customers of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® by paying for their coffee and breakfast tabs. In addition to surprise savings at movie theaters and restaurants, Wescom will be paying tabs at select locations of The Grilled Cheese Truck and The Lobsta Truck, among other food trucks. Details and upcoming announcements will be available at www.wescom.org/wescomkindness.
