GLIDE Holiday Jam, 2012: Doin’ Good for GLIDE, featured music and spoken word performances at the Warfield Theatre on December 6, 2012. Artists including Judith Hill, Eoin Harrington, Lara Johnston, POPLYFE, Tony! Toni! Tone!, Tim Johnston of the Doobie Brothers, and the Glide Ensemble and Change Band performed and helped raise over $900,000 for GLIDE. Funds support GLIDE’s social programs including Mo’s Kitchen, which serves three meals a day to San Francisco’s poorest residents.
GLIDE provides healthcare, youth programs, housing, women’s services, emergency treatments, childcare and family support, as well as free daily meals. Located at Ellis and Taylor in the Tenderloin, one of San Francisco’s harshest urban environments, GLIDE is an oasis that has unconditionally served the poor and disenfranchised for nearly 50 years.
