For over 50 years, GLIDE has stood with the most vulnerable, including the poor and marginalized, those challenged by illness, homelessness, hunger, discrimination and exclusion. GLIDE remains a place for all in need to find a warm meal, access to healthcare and shelter, childcare and family services, and someone to advocate for them. GLIDE serves roughly 750,000 free meals a year.
“GLIDE really takes people who have hit rock bottom and helps bring them back, said Warren Buffett . “They've been doing it for decades. If I can help out by raising some money for them, then I enjoy doing it.”
“We are grateful to Warren Buffett and eBay for enabling us to reach thousands with our programs and support,” said GLIDE’s Co-Founder Reverend Cecil Williams .
“Warren Buffett’s generosity provides direct support to help the disenfranchised transform their lives. It allows GLIDE to remain a driving force for racial and economic equity in San Francisco and beyond,” said GLIDE President and CEO Karen Hanrahan .
