The GLIDE family remembers #NelsonMandela, who would have been 100 years old today. Our Co-Founder Rev. Cecil Williams greeted South Africa’s beloved Madiba in Oakland in June of 1990, just five months after his release from prison. . “Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.” - Nelson Mandela . #nelsonmandela100 #madiba #nelsonmandeladay #fromthearchives #cecilwilliams @nelsonmandelafoundationsa @mchammer @goapele @fantasticnegrito @shakasenghor @feliciahorowitz @mglide
Exactly one week ago, a group of GLIDE seniors completed a six-week Healthy Living workshop with our own Ms. Tina Huang. Here is what Tina had to say about the experience: . "I am so happy that we're celebrating with this gratitude ceremony. Congratulation to the seniors who have completed their healthier living workshop. Within six weeks, our seniors learned how to live healthier by coping with their stress and creating positive changes for their lifestyle. I am very proud of them as they showed an interest in learning and dedication throughout the workshop. I hope they can bring this knowledge and apply it in their every-day lifestyle, as well as share it with those who may benefit from this information." . Congratulations, #GLIDEseniors! #healthyliving #wednesdaywisdom
Thanks to this group of #volunteers from @salesforce for stepping up to the plate and braving the onions yesterday! They prepared lunch for hundreds of diners from the community! . "I think it's a really smart thing for Salesforce to do. Not just talk about it – of course everybody wants to be a part of their community, of course everybody wants to volunteer and support causes, but to actually insist on people coming down here on their first day of training – hey, that's putting your money where your mouth is." - Shan Nichols, Systems Engineering Director (not pictured) . GLIDE relies on 75-85 volunteers EVERY DAY to serve three meals to everyone who walks through our doors. #startyourdaywithservice #volunteersf #foodjustice #givingback #stepuptotheplate @benioff @salesforcejobs @salesforceorg @ggundry @joselynmarie1
Yesterday we were pleased to welcome the #SaferInside Planning Committee to Celebration and a press conference with Mayor @londonbreed! Thanks for all of your hard work & commitment to helping people understand the importance of bringing #safeinjectionsites to San Francisco.
