Why am I writing this blog?

by Rita Shimmin, Co-Executive Director

Why am I writing this blog?… Because GLIDE is entering the online, digital age and pulling me along with it. We are upgrading the look and feel of our website and developing a social-networking application to engage and grow our online community. Why do we want you to have a better experience on our website? Why do we want more and more people sharing the GLIDE experience through social media? Because GLIDE is in the business of social change; and everybody knows that social change is happening online and through social-networking.

Internet technology has given GLIDE new avenues to reach people who are interested in social justice and joining us in our mission to break cycles of poverty and spread love to those on the margins. We are so excited to see the reach of GLIDE’s love through our internet community and we welcome you to visit us through our website, this blog, follow us on Twitter and Facebook and check out client, staff, and volunteer vlogs on YouTube and Vimeo.

So, why am I writing this blog? To welcome you, to invite you to join our online family, and to thank you for your commitment to social change.

    Thank you Glide Memorial for all that that you do! Your warm spirits and help will not go un-noticed. The unfortunate are truly lucky to have you in their lives. To have someone to turn to in hunger and poverty and find you for a meal and guidance.
    We all are blessed in many many ways. You are blessed more!
    Thank you and happy holidays.
    Laura

Joyce Hayes, celebrating life, love and GLIDE with @doricamino and @edenchanstreetscooper at the 2014 Holiday Jam. A retro photo of Joyce Hayes, a true GLIDE hero, who so strongly believed in supporting children and providing them with stability, education and #unconditionallove. GLIDE regrets to tell our community that Joyce Hayes, an icon in our history and childcare program, passed away on Tuesday, 5/23/2017. Her life, love and legacy will not be forgotten. 
Please take a moment to read this tribute to our beloved "Joy": glidesf.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/in-memory-of-joyce-hayes-the-heartbeat-of-glides-fycc/ Shout-out @blueshieldofca volunteers! Our Harm Reduction Team always needs people to help assemble safer injection kits. Distributing these kits to our community members who inject drugs greatly reduces the spread of Hep C and HIV. It's about #publichealth and recognizing the dignity and human rights of ALL people living in our city! #harmreduction #cleansharps
