GLAD WORKS Assists Nonprofit
Pawtucket-based GLAD WORKS, a print, Web and multimedia ad agency, recently completed a print brochure and other collateral material for the St. Edward Food and Wellness Center on a pro bono basis.
Founded by the Rev. Edward Cardente, pastor of St. Anthony and St. Edward parishes, the center offers food, clothing and medical services to Providence's needy.
"(Rev. Cardente) brought our attention to the growing problem of hunger in Rhode Island," said Callum Grieve, marketing director at GLAD WORKS. "And we felt compelled to help."

The ‘GLAD’ in GLAD WORKS was derived from its original founder’s name, Gina Lisa Angelo DiSpirito. “As a child, I would sign paintings, ceramics or sculpture with my initials. My Mom pointed out that there was ‘Graphic Layout And Design’ within GLAD as well. The rest – as they say – is history.”
