Credit Union Spreads #WescomKindness this November 13 at a time when many people need it most

PASADENA, CA (November 10, 2020) — As an act of kindness, Wescom Credit Union will pick up the tab for people at select The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® locations across Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino counties on World Kindness Day next Friday, November 13—no strings attached. This will be the third year in a row for this #WescomKindness event.

“For many Southern Californians, 2020 has been a ‘challenging’ year and we’re looking forward to sharing a bit of #WescomKindess with local residents, at a time when they might need it most,” said Tamar Atamian, Vice President, Marketing, Wescom. “However you like to start your day—coffee or tea—receiving a small act of kindness can set a positive tone for the day ahead.”

Wescom will pay beverage tabs, up to $15 per transaction, on a first-come, first-served basis beginning the moment the doors open in the morning until $2,000 worth of bills are paid at each of 22 participating The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® locations. For the list of stores, visit

“We’re pleased to partner with Wescom Credit Union again this year to show guests some added kindness on World Kindness Day,” said Christy Smith, director of marketing, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. “Even something as simple as a free cup of coffee can create so much joy in today’s climate and we are happy to be a part of spreading positivity across Southern California.”
