Grocery Bag Giveaway at GLIDE!

It’s Grocery Bag Giveaway Day at GLIDE and the streets are abuzz with the spirit of joy and love as GLIDE staff along with hundreds of volunteers distribute over 5,000 bags of groceries to the community.
The bags are filled with the fixings for a wonderful holiday meal, and those who receive a bag are grateful for the generosity of all involved – from event sponsors SpotOn, Central Payment, and the Gap, to the dedicated staff and volunteers that arrived before sunrise – it takes the entire GLIDE family to make Grocery Bag Giveaway Day a success.
Check out a few snapshots of the day so far:
