PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wescom, a leading Southern California Credit Union, is helping area residents get Daylight Saving Time off to a great start on Sunday, March 12, 2023 by treating them to free coffee and tea. The 9th Annual #WescomKindness Daylight Saving Time event will take place across twenty-two select The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® locations in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.
“For 89 years, Wescom has been dedicated to helping Southern Californians live better lives,” noted Tamar Atamian, Vice President of Marketing at Wescom Credit Union. “Giving people in the community a taste of #WescomKindness by picking up the tab for their coffee after they’ve lost an hour of sleep is a simple expression of how much we care.”
Wescom is also taking some of the pain out of losing an hour of sleep by offering recipients of #WescomKindness a chance to win $500 when they post a photo of themselves on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #WescomKindness. The winner will be chosen randomly from eligible participants.*
Wescom will be providing $44,000 worth of beverages for the day beginning when doors open the morning of March 12 at each of the 22 designated Southern California The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® cafés. The free beverages are available on a first-come, first-served basis until funds allocated to each café have been exhausted. A list of participating The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® locations, as well as details of the $500 giveaway, are available online at wescom.org/cbtl.
“Wescom’s tradition of picking up the tab for our guests on Daylight Saving Time always brings a smile to their faces,” said Daniella Voysey, Head of Marketing, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® brand. “Wescom and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® are both dedicated to creating a greater sense of community and we love partnering for this annual event.”
