Children from GLIDE to be given $100 shopping spree at Old Navy

On Wednesday nearly 100 children will be let loose in Old Navy on Market Street, $100 gift cards in hand. The large clothing retailer is partnering with GLIDE Family Services this holiday, helping children in need get warm winter clothes and other items that they themselves get to choose.

The event will take place on Dec. 7th from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., during which time the store at 801 Market St. will remain open to the public. Each child will be assigned a “personal shopper” to help them get the most out of their experience.

GLIDE’s Janice Mirikitani Family Youth and Childcare Center offers educational after school programs for youth, many of whom are in need. The Center provides 2,420 hours of licensed childcare to the Tenderloin community every year.
