Volunteering at GLIDE: Presidio Graduate School

by Kate Drane and Amanda Ravenhill, Presidio Graduate, 2011

Our community-service student group, Presidio and Community Engagement (PACE), spent the afternoon volunteering at GLIDE on March 8th. It was a wonderful experience for the 15 students and alumni of Presidio Graduate School to serve over 350 meals to those in need.

Our group played a variety of roles, including welcoming guests, preparing food trays for distribution, and serving individuals in the dining areas. Several of our volunteers had the opportunity to sit down and connect with the individuals as they ate, learning more with each nice one-on-one conversation.

Our afternoon at GLIDE helped us to gain empathy for less fortunate members of our community as we sat with, served, and talked to men and women who lack access to many things we take for granted every day. Thanks to our experience we now have more appreciation for what we have and more eagerness to share, even if it’s just our smiles as we walk down the street.

The Presidio Graduate School students who attended included some new faces for me and I have since become close friends with them and strengthened my community in doing so. All in all it was one of the most memorable extracurricular school events that I’ve participated in. Thank you GLIDE!
