Designed to provide support to community-based organizations that help people become more self-sufficient and that enrich their lives.

Sonya Mackintosh believes in giving back to her community. That's why smARTWORKS, Inc. contributes to the local economy in ways specifically pertaining to animal rights, cultural organizations and health issues that are close to her.

How it Works

Each season a scarf and an organization are selected and paired. 15% of the sales of that scarf will be donated to the organization.

This Season's Selection

This season's selection, available from September - February 2015, will benefit Girls, Inc.

Girls, Inc.

Girls Inc. has grown into the premiere leadership program in Berkshire County for girls and young women. Each year nearly 1,000 girls from 22 towns and at 17 sites take part in their programs. Their mission of inspiring all girls to be "strong, smart, and bold" has remained for nearly a century with a special emphasis to become responsible, confident and personally fulfilled individuals.
