This annual fundraiser is critically important in helping to provide necessary services to the elderly in the greater Dripping Springs Area. Sponsorships and donations help to provide meals for Our Daily Bread – a hot meal delivery program for the homebound, medic alert devices for summoning help in an emergency, financial assistance for low income seniors in times of dire need, funding for special events at Hill Country Care for their residents, and numerous other programs beneficial to the elderly. The Friends Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
