Local Business Relationships
Building relationships with local businesses through networking, cross-marketing, and genuine friendships is important. The Neighborhood Cup is an independent, family-run business that looks forward to working within their local business community.

Community, Charities, Support
As a member of the community, The Neighborhood Cup will take part in supporting local concerns and hosting cause-related fundraising and charitable events. They work jointly on efforts benefiting such groups as the local fire and police agencies, the public library, and groups that support awareness and solutions for issues like breast cancer, domestic violence, illiteracy, and child illnesses.

Environmental Responsibility
As the coffee industry grows, coffee grounds are taking up more valuable landfill space. The Neighborhood Cup will offer used coffee grounds to customers and nurseries to use as compost, provide recycling containers to further assist in recycling efforts. The Neighborhood Cup will sponsor informational programs in order to help teach others on how to protect our precious environment.

Art Gallery
The Neighborhood Cup has an art gallery that will display the works of local and national artists. See amazing works in a variety of styles. Join them as they welcome in featured artists with a special monthly gallery event. Come and meet the artist and find out what has inspired them and how they created their masterpieces.

The beautiful atrium that is part of the Orange County Public Library provides a perfect venue for musicians to showcase their talents. The Neighborhood Cup will be the place to enjoy the diverse sounds of local musicians - jazz, folk, acoustic, blues and much more.

Entertainment & Activities
