Mary Irwin-Scott

Since 2005, Plates With Purpose has raised awareness for and donated over $150 thousand dollars to twelve non-profit organizations. Founded by Mary Irwin-Scott, President of the Riverside Design Group, it's a family-oriented company that takes community service very seriously. Irwin-Scott's daughter and Riverside Creative Director, Cassandra Ott, frequently collaborates with her mother and father, as well as Pittsburgh architect, Grant Scott, to design plates for various agencies and causes. Some Riverside beneficiaries have included the AIDS Task Force & Persad Center, Pittsburgh's Habitat for Humanity, and Court Appointed Special Advocates, a volunteer organization that helps abused and neglected children. Artist Judy Smilow also lent her design to benefit the Alzheimer's Association and honor her father after his long struggle with the disease. Each product in the Plates With Purpose line is simple, clean and inspiring, adding a delicate touch to any table and community awareness to the home. collection

          This is a gift to my niece for her wedding. I have not seen the product, as it was shipped directly to her, but she was touched and thought the set was beautiful and unique

                      I bought this for my mom for her birthday. My grandmother passed away following a battle with Alzheimer's, so this was a wonderful way to give my mom something beautiful, but also with meaning. I don't think there is anything better than being able to give a gift knowing a difference is also being made.

                      Beautiful gift - I gave this to my mother-in-law after she helped my family through the loss of my father due to lewy body dementia. Love the cause and that it is made from recycled glass.

                          Bought this for a wedding gift. Loved the fact it was made from recycled materials and the idea that portion of proceeds supported local charity in Pgh. The couple thought it was the most perfect, unique gift for their wedding!
