In an effort to raise money for local charities, the specialty roaster, wholesaler and retailer, has launched a program called A Cup of Kindness.
As part of the program, whose slogan is “Our Beans Are Big-Hearted,” customers have the opportunity to select one of three charities to receive a $500 donation.
With each purchase, customers are given one bean to drop into a coffee cup representing the charity of their choice. At the end of each quarter, Oceana Coffee owners Amy and Scott Angelo will tally the votes and award $500 to the winner.
“Businesses can tend to overuse the idea of ‘giving back to the community,'” Amy Angelo said in a release. “But when you find yourself not just in the position to be able to do so, but also feel in your heart that you want to help folks less fortunate than yourself — the way we feel — it’s what you do.”
The three charities selected by the Angelos this quarter are Els for Autism, Piper’s Angels, and Friends of Jupiter Beach.
Els for Autism provides life-span services to help adults with autism transition to all aspects of life; Piper’s Angels supports and improves the lives of families in the cystic fibrosis community; and Friends of Jupiter Beach is a community organization that supports and maintains healthy, clean and dog-friendly beaches in Jupiter.
Oceana Coffee is at 150 N. U.S. 1. Customers can visit from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
