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.
