As a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) Guadalupe Economic Services Corporation (GESC) is focused on growing, educating, and supporting communities to positively influence the economic, educational, and social outcomes for families and individuals who are below federal poverty income levels.
GESC partners with daycares to provide new winter clothing to children ages 0 to 5 in daycares which offer care based on a sliding scale fee. It's our belief that by providing clothing to the most vulnerable during the coldest months we are promoting preventative medicine.
(Reaching Our Communities) The ROC is a multi-county summer campaign which focuses primarily on supportive services for children. We provide haircuts, sunscreen, summer clothing, hats, snow cones, bikes, books and shoes. The event is free and is held at community centers, churches and schools.
GESC partners year-round with Women's, Children's and Adult Protective Services to provide supportive services to families seeking change.
Each September GESC serves up delicious smoked turkey legs, fajitas, brisket, soft drinks and nachos to raise operational funds. All net proceeds go directly to GESC to serve families right here at home.
