GIVING BACK: Creative Art Works

Since 1986, Creative Art Works (CAW) has been giving under-resourced neighborhoods the opportunity to empower kids through art. By providing the materials and direction to hone career-oriented skills, actualize creativity, and engage with the community, CAW is helping young people develop the confidence and connections they need to thrive. One of their most impactful programs pairs groups of kids with artists to create lasting murals in their community. 

Structure Tone’s journey with CAW began 21 years ago. A client, Boston Properties, introduced the company to the cause and the Structure Tone team began donating office supplies, paint, brushes, ladders, and tarps to their budding summer program.

As the program has expanded, so has Structure Tone’s involvement. Paint is one of CAW’s biggest expenses, so Structure Tone executive vice president Scott Corneby worked with CAW’s board to connect them with Sherwin Williams, who now supplies their paint.

“At first we were helping coordinate the donations, but now CAW and Sherwin Williams have developed a direct relationship of their own,” says Corneby. “It’s gratifying to help in such a tangible way.”

Structure Tone employees also attend CAW’s annual benefit to help raise money and connect with the individuals behind the program and their vision.

Investing in local people and their communities is crucial to their survival. Murals created “by the community, for the community” are a way for kids to connect and engage with their neighborhood—but it’s more than that. The program instills skills and habits that serve them in both their personal and professional life. Kids who have attended programs like CAW have shown an increase in attendance and a decrease in behavioral issues at school. Their participation improves standardized testing, grades, and the probability of passing the math and English regents, which allows students to graduate, go onto college, and ultimately give back to their community.

“Most of us took this job in order to make money, but something else came out of it – we also helped our families, we contributed to the Bronx Renaissance”, said one CAW youth apprentice. “I learned that when a community comes together and we work hard, we can get something done, and the whole community will be improved by it, they will enjoy it, and they will respect it”

Structure Tone’s annual golf classic to support kids with cerebral palsy brings together Dublin’s construction community to play golf and raise money annually for a selected child. The money raised goes towards treating their condition and making it possible to travel to the Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri for a life-changing surgery called “selective dorsal rhizotomy,” or SDR. Each year 32 teams compete, with more clients, consultants and employees supporting the post-golf evening event, including a live auction hosted by Structure Tone’s Richard Hemming. To date, the golf classic has raised over €200,000, all of which has gone directly to each child’s family to help fund their SDR quest.

The New York City–Southern New York Chapter of the National MS Society is committed to helping the 10,000 people living with multiple sclerosis in the five boroughs and Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange and Sullivan Counties to move their lives forward. The chapter raises funds locally to support the Society’s critical research initiatives and to provide hundreds of comprehensive support services and educational programs for people living with MS and their families and friends. STO NY, the NY Real Estate community and NY MS chapter teamed up to honor Linda Foggie of Wells Fargo and raise over $440,000! Well done everyone, especially the event’s committee chair, our own Jim Donaghy.
