OLD NAVY PARTNERS WITH GLIDE TO GIVE CHILDREN OF THE TENDERLOIN A HOLIDAY SHOPPING SPREE

WHAT: GLIDE and OLD NAVY have partnered once again to provide 100 children who attend GLIDE’s Janice Mirikitani Family, Youth and Childcare Center (FYCC) and GLIDE’s Family Resource Center (FRC) with a holiday shopping spree. 45 children ranging from 6 -10 years old will attend the shopping spree in person. The remaining 55 preschool and toddler aged children will receive a $100 gift card from Old Navy so that they can make their purchases online ahead of time. The shopping spree partnership with Old Navy has been happening for the past 20 years.

This will be the second-time, post – pandemic, that the shopping spree is in person(in line with GLIDE’s #ReturntoCommunity campaign)! Activities during the visit will include a photo booth in Santa’s workshop, goodie bags, ornament making, and candy cane making stations! With the Tenderloin being the home to the highest concentration of children in San Francisco, and many of those children attending FYCC; this is a feel- good event that both organizations are very proud of and even more excited to extend to the media.

WHEN: Thursday, November 30th, from 4:00PM to 6:00PM. WHERE: Old Navy Store @ 55 Colma Boulevard, Colma, CA 94014
