Reviews for Glide Memorial United Methodist Church

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter went to Synergy School in SF which required all students to do a day of community service. She selected to help serve meals at Glide one weekend and I went with here. We got a good introduction when we arrived so we knew what we were doing. I felt very useful, and it seemed like the staff very much respected the people being served. A great experience.

I just volunteered for the Glide Grocery Giveaway, which gives a bag of groceries containing a Christmas meal to over 7000 residents of San Francisco, many of them older women and men. The entire process was amazing--efficient, fun, well-run, and did an excellent job of using individual volunteers as well as corporate teams--the Gap and PGE were 2 of the companies working my shift. Glide did a very savvy deployment of volunteers, directing them to the tasks at hand. I really enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer because what could be finer than working to feed the community I live in,

Rev. Cecil Williams and Glide have been working and serving all people since I moved to SF in 1966. They were among the first to give aid & comfort to those diagnosed with HIV/Aids 30+ years ago. Anyone who was hungry, cold or needed a place for spiritual comfort got that at Glide. My daughter, at age 10, and I for many years helped serve Thanksgiving meals and now as an adult she makes full meals for all holidays and goes out to areas where homeless people are and serves them herself. Amazing is an oft used word, but in this case, this church and its congregation fit that description. Thank you.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being of service and all the rewards that brings.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

care for even more people in ways I'm unable to imagine. But, knowing Cecil Williams, well his imagination knows no bounds.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
