Glad Writings Card Shop
1700 N. Illinois St.
Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., 1– 3 p.m.
The Glad Writings Card Shop is an outpatient art program in which patients are involved in the production, marketing and sales of hand-made greeting cards. Through participation in the program, patients have the opportunity to build cognitive, leisure and social skills leading to more independent lives. It is also a means for the clients to use their creative skills to express their emotions.
The program began in 2001 with the help of a large donation of paper and supplies from American Greetings Card Company. Supply donations and support from generous Wishard and Midtown employees, as well as various community members and organizations, allows the program to maintain sustainability and grow.
