At Structura, we recognize the significance of community and service, and are delighted to engage in our Charity Match initiative to give back to our communities. Each month, our team members suggest charitable organizations, and we use a random drawing to select the non-profit recipient for that month's donation.
In July, we made a contribution to the North Carolina Chapter of the ALS Association, an organization dedicated to supporting individuals affected by Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease." ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative condition that impacts nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Donations to the ALS Association enable them to provide Care Services for those dealing with ALS, advocate for research, health, long-term care, and caregiver support, and fund research efforts to combat ALS.
In August, our donation went to Bmore Community Food, operated by An End to Ignorance, Inc. This organization serves the vulnerable population in Baltimore City by rescuing edible food that would otherwise go to waste and supplementing it with fresh meat and non-perishable items. They prepare food boxes for individual families and partner organizations while also distributing food at weekly curbside locations.
For our September donation, we supported The Nicholson Project, an artist residency program combined with a neighborhood garden that aims to uplift artists and function as a creative and innovative cultural center. Their goal is to become a community cornerstone that celebrates the authentic identity of the community while injecting new energy into Southeast DC.
