The $35 million Spartanburg Regional Federal Credit Union made Friday the 13th a lucky day for some customers at a local coffee shop next to its branch in Duncan, S.C.
The 6,900-member credit union picked up the tab for customers at Bella Latte, budgeting enough to keep the free java going through the 9 a.m. rush hour.
The giveaway was part of the MADTAG effort under way by South Carolina credit unions. “This is SRFCU’s small contribution to the larger statewide make-a-difference campaign,” said SRFCU’s CEO, Pat West.
“This really made my day,” one Bella Latte drive-thru customer told the credit union. “When times are tough, every little bit can make a difference” said a single mom on her way to work, purchasing her morning coffee and treat for her son.
