Supporting R.I. Angel of Hope and Strength

By Jennifer Bray

So great to see this inspirational R.I. Hope Angel poster https://www.rimonthly.com/behind-the-may-june-cover-ri-angel-of-hope-and-strength/ in the latest issue of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine!

Included in every issue is a full-sized pull-out poster of the Shepard Fairey print, which was underwritten by National Grid. Rhode Island Monthly publisher John Palumbo said, “We thank National Grid for providing funding to cover our costs days before we shipped this to press. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, but we have continued to chronicle life in Rhode Island, both in good times and in bad, and will do the same for years to come.”

Terry Sobolewski, president of National Grid Rhode Island, said “The last few months have been extremely challenging for everyone, especially our front line workers and health care professionals. The physical and mental toll they face is incomparable, and their courage and resiliency to continue helping their patients and neighbors during these difficult times is deeply inspiring. We wanted to find a simple way to honor their commitment and bravery. And we want to encourage other Rhode Islanders to salute the many people helping us all overcome the pandemic. These heroes are keeping us safe, while giving us hope and confidence that we will get through this together.”
