Think Local, Give Local
The Garces Foundation supports the local Philadelphia immigrant community with the purpose of ensuring that they have access to the resources they need to live healthy, educated, nutritious lives. The Garces Foundation hosts quarterly clinics at Garces Dental Group where uninsured patients can receive free dental care and other important health services. If English is your second language, the Garces Foundation Learning Annex offers nine classes for those who want to learn English and better their professional skills.
During the spring, summer, and fall growing seasons, groups of 30-50 school-aged youth are invited to visit the Garces’ Luna Farm in Bucks County for four-hour field trips. Participants are engaged in hands on learning activities that include planting and harvesting vegetables, cooking their own lunch with produce they harvest, and participating in physical exercise and a nature walk.
